Rand Paul Backs Manny Sethi for U.S. Senate in Tennessee

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has endorsed Manny Sethi for U.S. Senate in Tennessee, according to a report by the Nashville Tennesseean. “Tennessee deserves a true conservative who supports President Trump, is pro-liberty, and will fight out-of-control federal spending,” Paul stated in his endorsement message. “I believe Dr. Manny is the right choice. Like me, he’s a physician, not another politician. We need more outsiders in Washington, and I’m proud to endorse him today.” Paul is the highest profile endorsement that Sethi has received so far.

Rand Paul Endorses Corky Messner for U.S. Senate In New Hampshire

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has endorsed Bryant “Corky” Messner for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, according to a report by WMUR. He ascribed his endorsement to Messner’s support for a limited government, libertarian-leaning agenda. “One of my favorite things about New Hampshire is the ‘Live Free or Die’ spirit of independence and liberty,” Paul said in a statement. “Having more senators in Washington who embody those ideals and can amplify that message in Congress is needed now more than ever. Fortunately, with Corky Messner, the Granite State has a candidate who is prepared to do just that.” Keep Reading

Rep. Justin Amash (L-MI) has suggested that federal law should be reinterpreted to extend existing employment protections against discrimination on the basis of sex to discrimination against transgenders, in an interview with Forbes on Friday. “I would protect transgender Americans under the protections that exist for sex,” Amash. “I think that people can take the term ‘sex’ that’s in federal law and interpret it to mean things beyond what it traditionally meant.” He went on to suggest the courts could play a role to increase the scope of these laws. “Sometimes, we have to catch up to the law,” Amash… Keep Reading

Libertarian Party Chair Brags About Prospect Of Amash Handing Biden Michigan Win

Libertarian Party Chairman Nicholas Sarwark bragged about the prospect of a potential presidential bid by Rep. Justin Amash (L-MI) handing Biden a win in Michigan in November in an interview with Detroit News on Wednesday. “Based on how [Gov. Gary] Johnson did in New Mexico, if the last Michigan contest was decided by 10,000 votes, I’m pretty sure having a Michigander … on the ballot just takes Michigan off the board for the president,” Sarwark stated. Trump won Michigan, a vital swing state, by a margin of just 0.23% of the vote in 2016. Keep Reading
