"Senator Rand Paul is unlike any other Republican," says Doug Wead. "He is the only contender who beats Hillary Clinton head to head in battleground states, and I think it's because Rand Paul has real, organic support from youth, from Hispanics, from African-Americans and from Independents. Rand Paul speaks to those who care about civil liberties, criminal justice reform, ending corruption in our economy, and restoring the American Dream. I am proud to Stand with Rand as he runs for President of the United States."
"I am very grateful to have Doug Wead's endorsement and support. He is an incredibly influential conservative and evangelical leader, and I look forward to working alongside Doug to solve our nation's current moral crisis," said Sen. Rand Paul.
