Paul Backers Want Him to Make White House Bid

Some Republicans say Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) needs to start acting more like a presidential candidate, the New York Times reports.

"They note that he does not have a political or fund-raising infrastructure to match his emerging national profile. Mr. Paul has been working to change that, keeping a frenetic schedule more befitting a presidential candidate than a first-term senator. While his speeches before conservative audiences and on liberal campuses draw headlines, he also is trying to cultivate relationships with wealthy Republican contributors -- vital in this pre-primary season."

"He is slowly fusing the small-dollar donor base that contributed $41 million to the 2012 presidential campaign of his father, Ron, with the more traditional donors who raised millions for more mainstream candidates."
