Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced Wednesday that he will no longer be continuing his presidential campaign, bringing his bid to an end.
“Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of liberty,” Mr. Paul said in a statement. “Across the country thousands upon thousands of young people flocked to our message of limited government, privacy, criminal justice reform and a reasonable foreign policy. Brush fires of liberty were ignited, and those will carry on, as will I.”
Just two days after finishing fifth place in the Iowa Caucus with only 4.5 percent of the votes Mr. Rand Paul decides to bring his campaign to an end, letting down a strong libertarian following that had high hopes of seeing Mr. Paul run in the elections learning from his father, former congressman Ron Paul from Texas, who ran in the elections of 2008 and 2009.
Mr. Paul was known for calling out the establishment, on foreign policy, and citizen spying, and auditing the Federal Reserve banking system. The mainstream media like his father, made sure to censor his image and kept him in the shadows of the television not giving him the equal opportunity to express his policies as they would with opponent Republican candidates such as Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.
The aspirations of becoming president have now come to an end for Mr. Rand Paul, but he will continue to remain for re-election as a member of the Senate.
