Rand Paul Believes He Could Have the Votes To Cut Aid to Egypt

Amendment could be passed next month


Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is gaining momentum in the battle over foreign policy that has roiled the Senate Republican conference for the past year.

Paul, according to Senate aides, thinks he could have the votes to pass an amendment next month to cut off aid to Egypt, a proposal Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and other GOP colleagues have resisted fiercely.
