Paul is his father’s son. He has carried on the fight for auditing the Federal Reserve, which is now part of the Republican platform. He has extended that call to auditing the Pentagon, one part of the government that is sacrosanct to many Republicans. Senator Paul has opposed foreign wars in Iraq and Libya, while demanding any conflict be authorized by a congressional declaration.
But the younger Paul has also emerged as a leader in the broader tea party. His 2010 Kentucky primary victory over a candidate handpicked by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell was one of that movement’s biggest triumphs over the GOP establishment. Unlike his father, Rand Paul adjusts his stump speech for different audiences and is comfortable delivering conservative red meat". – The Daily Caller
