Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., joined Megyn Kelly on Fox News to explain – in light of Senator Ted Cruz’s announcement for presidency – how he is different from other Republicans,–and namely, more likely to win against Cruz.
“So I spent the last couple of years trying to go places Republicans haven’t gone, and maybe not just throwing out red meat, but actually throwing out something intellectually enticing to people who haven’t been listening to our message before,” Paul said.
“I guess what makes us different is probably our approaches to how we would make the party bigger,” Paul added. “I’m a big believer that you should stand on principle and be true to your principles, but I also think that we should take those principles and try to bring in new people with them.”
Those new people, he argues, are audiences outside the GOP spectrum and located in places like Howard University, the Urban League, NAACP, Ferguson, and Berkeley.
“Ted Cruz is a conservative, but it also goes to winnability, and people will have to make a decision, which is the Republican that can not only excite the base, but can also bring new people into the party without giving up the principles,” Paul said. “I think what you end up needing, … is you do want someone whose a fighter.”
