Rand Paul’s last name certainly has ties with a Libertarian hero — but his first name has come in handy in recent weeks for fans of the freshman senator from Kentucky.

Mr. Paul’s near-13-hour filibuster has inspired the slogan “Stand with Rand” to the point that, Ryan Bolyard, president of the Hillsdale College Republicans, told Campus Reform he hoped the entire audience would stand during the speech.

It didn’t exactly work out that way, but many did remain standing, waved signs emblazoned with “Stand with Rand” and chanted the phrase as he wrapped up.
