RNC Chief Reince Priebus Says All GOP Senators Should Go Stand with Rand on Brennan Filibuster


It's almost like watching the Republican status quo change over the course of a day.

Support for Rand Paul's filibuster of the John Brennan CIA chief nomination over administration authority to kill Americans here in America just because they think they should has slowly increased and after a few solo hours he has been joined in various respects by Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Jerry Moran, Ron Wyden, Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, Saxby Chambliss, John Cornyn, John Barrasso, John Thune, and Mitch McConnell, as Ed Krayewski blogged earlier.

Now Reince Priebus, the chief of the Republican National Committee–not a legislator but surely some bellwether of at least what he thinks the Party's members and supporters want–has tweeted:

Attention all Republican US Senators -> Please go to the floor and help out @SenRandPaul #StandWithRand
