Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was in Charleston Monday to talk about his possible 2012 presidential bid, as well as other issues facing the country. While in Charleston, Paul explained why he made the visit.
South Carolina is important. It’s one of those early Republican states. So, we are here talking a little bit about it and asking people what they are interested in and trying to see if the Tea Party can have some kind of influence over 2012.
Paul, a Tea Party favorite, won his Senate seat last Fall. He is currently making his rounds to early voting Republican-dominated states for his possible 2012 presidential bid. Paul also spoke about how the country should rein in the national debt and the current military action in Libya.
