Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is head­ing to Michigan Sat­urday “to ad­dress the state GOP’s 30th Bi­en­ni­al Mack­in­ac Re­pub­lic­an Lead­er­ship Con­fer­ence. Michigan is a key Re­pub­lic­an primary state,” and a June PPP poll showed Paul lead­ing the po­ten­tial GOP field in the state with 18%. (Louis­ville Cour­i­er-Journ­al)

#WIN­NING. Paul “said on Thursday that Re­pub­lic­ans have been ‘win­ning’ re­cent Wash­ing­ton battles and laid out a roadmap for how the party can use the vic­tor­ies to ap­peal to key vot­ing blocks that fueled” Pres­id­ent Obama’s reelec­tion. Paul “said Obama’s de­cision to seek Con­gres­sion­al ap­prov­al for mil­it­ary strikes on Syr­ia and pub­lic out­rage over wide-ran­ging gov­ern­ment sur­veil­lance pro­grams have made for a great few months for the GOP. And those vic­tor­ies give tre­mend­ous in­sight in­to how Re­pub­lic­ans can re­take the White House in 2016, he said.”

Paul, at the Liberty Polit­ic­al Ac­tion Con­fer­ence: “I think we are win­ning in the sense that the pub­lic is with us, it’s just not us, the rem­nants or the hard core, but I think the pub­lic is, in gen­er­al, with us on these is­sues. … I think also that from a par­tis­an point of view as a Re­pub­lic­an, theses are ways we grow the Re­pub­lic­an Party.”

Paul: “Who is prob­ably the least likely to pro­tect your pri­vacy among Demo­crats? Hil­lary Clin­ton.” He “did not spe­cify why he thought the former sec­ret­ary of state would be so vul­ner­able on this is­sue.”

Paul: “Does any­body re­mem­ber Charlie Sheen when he was kind of go­ing crazy… And he was go­ing around, jump­ing around say­ing ‘Win­ning, win­ning, we’re win­ning.’ … Well I kind of feel like that, we are win­ning. And I’m not on any drugs.” (MS­N­BC)
