This is a dramatic development. Senator Rand Paul, 2016 GOP Presidential potential hopeful, will speak at Howard University, the seminal African-American universityestablished in 1867 in Washington DC.  Here’s the story and below is from the university’s statement:

“Sen. Paul’s speech will focus on the importance of outreach to younger voters, as well as minority groups. He will also discuss the history of the African-American community’s roots in the Republican Party and current issues, such as school choice and civil liberties.”

I think this could be a blockbuster.  I am not fan of Lincoln or the Radical Republicans in their treatment of the South but there is plenty of history Senator Paul could cite to show African-Americans that the GOP is the party of civil rights and liberties.  I can’t wait to see what he’ll say Wednesday.  It could be a game-changer for the 2016 election.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
