Rand Paul: Without Changes, GOP May Not Win Again

At least not in his lifetime

|

Just days after warning his party that it will lose its electoral grip on Texas if it doesn't broaden its appeal, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., offered an even more dire prediction on Thursday: Forget losing Texas – the GOP might never win a presidential election again if it doesn't change its tune.

"I think Republicans will not win again in my lifetime…unless they become a new GOP, a new Republican Party," Paul said during an interview with conservative radio host Glenn Beck that aired Thursday. "And it has to be a transformation. Not a little tweaking at the edges."

The Kentucky Republican said the GOP needs to do a better job of tailoring specific messages to specific groups.
