Buchanan: Cruz or Paul Will Be In ‘Finals’ for GOP Nomination

Columnist Pat Buchanan predicted that either Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) or Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) would be in the “finals” for the GOP nomination in 2016 on Friday’s “McLaughlin Group.”

“If you want to get the nomination, you don’t worry about independents in a general election, you excite the base, the Tea Party, the conservatives, the activists, the libertarians, and this is exactly what Cruz is doing. And I think it’s a correct strategy as a nomination strategy, it’s risky in a general election” he stated.

Buchanan continued, “the guy that’s going to do well, the individual, I think he’s got to show some real passion and fire and energy and ability to communicate, and there’s no doubt I would put Cruz in the top level there and the second one I would put behind him for rolling that route is Rand Paul. One of those two, I think, is going to get to the finals.”
