The education of Rand Paul

on 13 Comments

Rand Paul told the Louisville Courier Journal he wouldn’t cut aid to Israel, and he’s going to visit the country this week. The Courier-Journal says he’s considering running for president. Well if you’re running for president, who do you need on your side? Rosie Gray at buzzfeed:

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has been holding a series of meetings with neo-conservative pro-Israel foreign policy hands as the libertarian prepares to take a seat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, sources familiar with the meetings said.

Paul’s new contacts include Dan Senor, a former key Mitt Romney foreign policy aide who is also close to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met Paul in his Washington office.

Paul is also going to take a “fairly impressive list of folks” on his trip to Israel next week, according to a source close to him, and he is planning on delivering a major foreign policy address in early February.

Noah Pollack tweeted yesterday, with joy:
