Paul: No Difference Between 'Clinton Democrat' and 'Obama Democrat'
Last night, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said that the GOP's big victory in the midterm election was not only a "repudiation" of President Obama, but also a sound rejection of Hillary Clinton's positions.
On "America's Newsroom" today, Bill Hemmer noted that several states in which Hillary and/or Bill Clinton campaigned heavily - including North Carolina, Iowa and Kentucky - went to Republicans.
Hemmer asked Paul about his comments and if he is setting his sights on Hillary in anticipation of the 2016 election.
Paul said Democrats tried to separate into two groups, "Clinton Democrats" and "Obama Democrats," but voters don't see much of a difference between the two, as their policies are in line with each other on nearly every major issue.
"One of the messages from yesterday is that southern Democrats don't believe that national Democrats are conservative any longer, and they're unwilling to do it, even if the Clintons try to pretend that it is so," Paul said.
When asked by Hemmer about the 2016 election, Paul revealed he will decide on a potential presidential run in the spring sometime, but he is having serious discussions with his family, advisors and staff members.
