This is the third win in a row for Rand Paul. Romney won in 2012. Rand Paul’s father won in 2011 and 2010. To recap the last six years: Paul, Paul, Paul, Romney, Paul, Paul. And speaking of not wanting dynasties, all day long the Tea People have been screaming about reports that Jeb Bush bussed in supporters to freep the straw poll. Via Breitbart:
Perhaps in fear that he didn’t have enough backers willing to show up on their own, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s campaign organized to bus supporters to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to cheer during his appearance on stage and vote for him in the straw poll. The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin writes that Bush brought people in from Washington, D.C.: “Mr. Bush’s supporters organized caravans of his Washington backers to attend his speech, and they cheered whenever anyone else booed,” Martin wrote. Those same bused in cheerers also will likely be expected by Bush’s campaign to vote for him in the famed straw poll. Betsy Woodruff at the liberal outlet Slate also obtained emails that prove Bush’s team was busing in supporters from K Street.
