Ahead of Sen. Rand Paul’s expected presidential campaign announcement Tuesday, the Kentucky Republican is out with a new video that likely offers a preview of how Mr. Paul plans to present himself to prospective voters on the trail.

The video says that on April 7, “a different kind of Republican will take on Washington,” showing commentators ranging from MSNBC host Chris Matthews to former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele speaking about Mr. Paul’s prospects.and organization.

It also features clips tied to Mr. Paul’s inner-city outreach efforts he’s made as the libertarian-minded senator has engaged in a concerted effort to expand the pool of possible Republican voters.

“It’s time for a new way,” Mr. Paul says in the video. “A new set of ideas. A new leader - one you can trust. One who works for you. And above all, it’s time for a new president.”

The video ends with chants of “President Paul” and the words: “On April 7 one leader will stand up to defeat the Washington machine and unleash the American dream.”
