Rand Paul: GOP Primaries Aren’t ‘Rigged,’ But They Are ‘Biased’

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) wouldn’t say the rules regarding delegates and the Republican primary process were “rigged,” but he did say he believed that they were biased in favor of the establishment.

“No, I hear someone’s been saying they’re rigged,” Paul said. “I don’t think they’re rigged, but they are biased. And intentionally so.

“Rigged would mean that it was illegal, that it was somewhat shady,” he added. “No, it’s done somewhat in the open. But they are biased in favor of the establishment.”

Paul went on to point to his father former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), a candidate for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, and how he was considered to be ineligible to be nominated based on Republican national committee rules, despite having acquired delegate throughout the process.
