Republican Liberty Caucus is backing Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for president.

“The RLC is a 100% grassroots, bottom up organization, and this endorsement indicates Senator Paul is the candidate of choice among our state charters and membership at large,” said RLC National Chairman Matt Nye.

“Senator Paul has been a consistent favorite with our members since he announced his candidacy, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to formally endorse him.”

In order for a candidate to receive an endorsement they need to security a two-thirds vote of the RLC state charters. Paul also won the straw poll in New Hampshire at last year’s RLC National Convention.

“The Republican Party is changing and we need dynamic new leaders like Paul to end the divisive rhetoric and dangerous policies being promoted by other candidates,” said RLC National Vice Chairman Dave Nalle.

“Paul has motivated unprecedented numbers of student activists and successfully reached out to minorities. There is a war on for the future of the Republican Party, and Paul represents the faction which must win if the Party is going to grow and represent positive values Republicans can be proud of.”
