Paul: ‘I Think People Who Want to Move Up the Ladder Will Come to the Republican Party’

Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) discussed, among other things, the future of the Republican Party Tuesday on "The O'Reilly Factor" and his belief that it should stick to its core principles of opportunity, jobs and lower taxes in order to appeal more to voters.
