Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says the GOP must expand its base into a broader coalition that welcomes diversity if it wants to win national elections.
Paul, a possible 2016 presidential hopeful, addressed the Maine Republican Party convention on Saturday.
Speaking to the state’s GOP, which has been troubled by infighting since libertarian activists devoted to Paul’s father took control, the audience heard words of compassion, the Associated Press reports.
Matching with this year’s convention theme of “unity,” Paul told the crowd that Republicans must extend a hand to groups that the country has mistreated.
