Rand Paul State of the Union

Rand Paul State of the Union

The Tea Party response to President Barack Obama's 2013 State of the Union address will be delivered by Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the libertarian-oriented son of 2012 unsuccessful presidential candidate and Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas). Paul was elected as Kentucky's junior senator in 2010 — with support from a Tea Party fueled by the 2009 passing of Obama's health reform — and is mentioned as a potential candidate for the 2016 presidential election. However, Paul will share the spotlight with another Tea Party darling; Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), another potential 2016 presidential candidate who will be delivering the Republican Party's official response to Obama's SOTU in a historical bilingual speech delivered live in English and pre-recorded in Spanish.
