Last year, Senator Ted Cruz was the featured speaker at the #CPAC2013 Blog Bash. This year Senator Rand Paul will speak to the room of national conservative bloggers and this is such a huge treat! Blog Bash is the largest gathering of right-of-center bloggers each year. Organizations that truly care about bloggers and citizen journalism contribute a little bit in order to have a neutral ground where bloggers can network with their brands and some of the biggest brands in the movement.
Senator Paul is considered a potential candidate for the Republican Party for the 2016 Presidential nominee. When Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) filibustered for nearly 13 hours two weeks ago, he had the American people on his side.
Randal Howard “Rand” Paul (born January 7, 1963) is an American ophthalmologist and politician who describes himself as a “constitutional conservative”. He is the third child of Republican Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Paul is the chairman and founder of Kentucky Taxpayers United.
In August 2009, Paul officially announced his candidacy for the United States Senate seat held by retiring Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky. Paul, a lifelong Republican, won the party’s primary election on May 18, 2010. He then defeated Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway in the general election on November 2, 2010.
