The former head of the Iowa Republican Party has taken a job with Sen. Rand Paul's political action committee — providing more evidence that the Kentucky Republican is laying the foundation for a 2016 presidential bid.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, leading the opposition to drone killing of U.S. citizens and to massive government surveillance of U.S. citizens email and phone records, fired back at fellow Republican Christie Christie, the New Jersey governor, who had attacked the Kentucky Republican for opposing massive government surveillance of U.S. citizens.
Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, two of the Republican Party's big guns, are sticking by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and rejecting rumors that they have joined a group trying to block Mr. Priebus from another two-year term as head of the party.
Paul chief strategist Doug Stafford has said Kentucky law barring simultaneous runs for two federal offices is unconstitutional and therefore not a serious impediment to a presidential bid even if the state legislature doesn't recast — or reinterpret — the law in Mr. Paul's favor.
"We thank the Kentucky Senate for recognizing the need to clarify the law to avoid a conflict with the U.S. Constitution," he said. "Federal law governs federal elections, and the Supreme Court has made it clear that states cannot impose additional qualifications beyond those in the Constitution."
