All About Rand Paul – US Presidential Election 2016 Republican Candidate

Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy event
of the week. Each week our staff of educators tries to introduce you to a person of interest
in the financial world. This could be a person in government or banking or an important investors
or trader. Over the next coming months ITA will take
a look into each US Presidential candidate. In this video we are going to take a look
at Rand Paul United States Senator and presidential hopeful.
Senator Rand Paul, M.D. is one of the nation’s leading advocates for liberty. Elected to
the U.S. Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional
liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach,
Rand has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope.
A devoted husband and father, Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, Ky., where
Rand owned his own ofthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. As a hard-working
and dedicated physician – not a career politician – Rand Paul came to Washington to shake things
up and to make a difference. Mr. Paul will try to put together a disparate
coalition of voters: the libertarian faithful who supported his father, former Representative
Ron Paul, in 2008 and 2012; Tea Party adherents drawn to his small-government fiscal conservatism;
and some who are not even Republicans, like college students and blacks, groups he has
been wooing for a year and a half. The question is whether the parts add up to a whole. Many
of his father’s supporters believe that Mr. Paul has sold them out by trying too hard
to appeal to mainstream Republicans. Tea Party conservatives could be peeled away by Senator
Ted Cruz of Texas or Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. And getting people who have never
voted Republican to do so is no small task, especially when many caucuses and primaries
are open only to registered Republicans. Mr. Paul’s viability will be judged on whether
he can win one of the first four states with nominating contests: Iowa, New Hampshire,
Nevada or South Carolina. He has a strong campaign operation in Iowa. But with such
a crowded field there, he may do better in New Hampshire, a libertarian-leaning state
where his father placed second in 2012 and the unaffiliated voters he is courting are
free to cast primary ballots.
