Cincinnati Enquirer Endorses Rand Paul for US Senate
Good news for the Rand Paul campaign. A newspaper people actually take seriously, the Cincinnati Enquirer, has endorsed Rand Paul for the United States Senate. Here’s some clips:
The world would be a poorer place if we did not make room for people with the courage to question conventional wisdom and the smarts to make a cogent case for their own vision. The race for Kentucky’s U.S. Senate seat this fall has such a candidate – Republican standard-bearer Rand Paul.
To succeed, Paul has work to do. He needs to choose his words more carefully, avoid actions that make him simply an obstructionist, and – most important – commit himself to understanding and serving the specific needs of Kentucky.
But we believe he can and will do that, so we endorse Rand Paul for the U.S. Senate.
Few candidates we’ve talked to in recent years have displayed such refreshing intelligence, inquisitiveness and candor. And few candidates have had their words and ideas so frequently vilified and taken out of context.
Paul also must be careful not to become a mere nay-sayer, or to let his provocative words take the focus off the real issues themselves. But his unique strengths, and his ability to articulate the concerns of many Kentuckians looking for a fresh, creative approach in Washington, make Rand Paul our choice in this U.S. Senate race.
