Rand Paul + filibuster = Populist love, Establishment opponents

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Rand Paul wins the day — but does it put him more at odds with the Establishment…and voters?:

“But big moves carry big risks, as supporters of Paul’s GOP competitors pointed out. Rival campaigns and other Republicans note that times have changed since Paul burst onto the national scene with his filibuster. Now, they say, with the Islamic State on the march, Paul’s efforts to restrict the NSA could jeopardize national security. Some predicted the filibuster would backfire, serving mainly to show early-state voters just how out of step Paul can be with the Republican mainstream.”
