Sen. Rand Paul won the 2013 Washington Times-CPAC presidential preference straw poll Saturday, and Sen. Marco Rubio was a close second, easily outdistancing the rest of the field and signaling the rise of a new generation of conservative leaders who will take the Republican Party into the 2016 election.
Mr. Paul won 25 percent of the vote, and Mr. Rubio collected 23 percent. Former Sen. Rick Santorum was third with just 8 percent, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — who was not invited to speak at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference — was next with 7 percent, and Rep. Paul D. Ryan, the GOP’s vice presidential nominee last year, was fifth with 6 percent.

A New WIng Emerging
Finally..... A new wing of the American conservative party is rising. This is not your father's GOP anymore folks and it's about damn time. I could never vote for the father, but I can vote for the son. Americans need to pay close attention to what the democrats and Obama have done to this county and by the time we get to the 2016 election, I am relatively sure they will have. It is time for a new star rising and Rand Paul is that star. Forget the Jendals, and the Rubio's and the Ryan's, Paul is the one who will lead his people out of the desert and back into the promised land in four years.And in my mind's eye? He reminds me a lot of Ronald Reagan.
