"I come to Howard today, not to preach, or prescribe some special formula for you but to say I want a government that leaves you alone, that encourages you to write the book that becomes your unique future."
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) spoke to an audience at the historically black college Howard University yesterday. The junior senator from the Bluegrass State said he wanted to start a conversation between African-American voters and Republicans, who pulled just 7 percent of the black vote in the 2012 presidential race.
