Rand Paul looking to make D.C. splash with Senate Tea Party Caucus

Kentucky Republican Senator-elect Rand Paul is already making waves in Washington, D.C. with plans to organize either a Senate or bicameral Tea Party Caucus.

Paul said he’s been chatting with several people from Kentucky about laying down a communications blueprint to keep the grassroots Tea Partiers nationwide in touch with their newly elected senators and representatives about what’s going on inside the Beltway. Paul told The Daily Caller he plans to start by forming a “nucleus” of conservative senators and then reach out to colleagues in the House.

  • EXCELLENT !!!

    Michelle Bachmann was also talking about establishing a Tea Party Caucus.

    The idea of creating a blueprint for keeping citizens apprised of legislative activities is wonderful !!

    In America, it is OUR government. We relied on the broadcast media to keep us alerted to things going on, but that trust was betrayed. Fortunately, internet communication affords us an avenue for monitoring gov't activities - which we, as citizens, SHOULD make an effort to do !

  • He's only one man in a sea of politicians, most of which don't want to hear him.

    I think doing everything he can to keep his constituents motivated and informed is a nice gesture, but i am not convinced he'll be able to produce the results they are looking for.

    I can't stand him, however, i hope he is successful because i think he is a good representative of the people who voted for him.

  • Michele Bachman has already done that. Paul should just join up with her group. There is no reason to have 2. They will just end up quarreling over who is the most fiscally conservative or whatever
