Statement from Tyler Olson on Rand Paul’s recent visit to Iowa

Posted by

“We hope Sen. Paul enjoyed his time in Iowa and we are glad he had such a warm reception. But it is not surprising. There is no one that represents the current Republican Party better than Rand Paul. He says Republicans must reach out to moderates and independents, yet he spends part of his trip with ultra-conservative right wing pastors. He says they must reach out to Latinos, yet he opposes common-sense immigration reform. He says the Party must reach out to minorities, yet opposes the Civil Rights Act. Rand Paul may try to gloss over his true positions, but Iowans are smart enough to see that he is out-of-touch and too extreme for our state.”
