Rand Paul Hosting Charleston SC Fundraiser



|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Senator Rand Paul and his wife, Kelley Paul, will attend a major fundraiser for his “Rand Paul Victory Committee” in Charleston, S.C. next month.

Paul’s event will be held at the Country Club of Charleston on April 8 – one day after he kicks off his presidential bid in Louisville, Kentucky.

Sponsoring the event?   South Carolina Tea Party favorite Tom Davis and establishment “Republican” gadfly Mallory Factor – an interesting combination, if you ask us (to view the event invitation, click here).

“You will be part of an important day in South Carolina and national politics,” an email promoting the event read. “It will be intimate enough to have a chance to spend some time with (the Pauls) thus seating is limited.”

How “intimate?”  Just to get in the door will cost you $1,000, while sponsorships run $2,700 and host status will cost you $5,000.

Paul’s candidacy has yet to catch fire in early voting South Carolina … while the splash landing into the race of another Tea Party hopeful, Ted Cruz, threatens to siphon off a big chunk of Paul’s potential support.

We like both candidates … although we’ve also been critical of them both upon occasion. Still, Cruz and Paul are – in our humble estimation – head and shoulders above the rest of the “Republican” rabble seeking the GOP presidential nomination in 2016.

Which is why it’s disappointing to see them sniping at one another already …
