Sen. Rand Paul's announcement today that he will seek the Republican Party's nomination for president punctuates a very real paradigm shift in the way the Grand Old Party will select its candidates for higher office. For most of Matt Kibbe's adult life, Republican poobahs have decided for the rest of us, typically favoring the dusty candidate that has been standing in queue the longest.

This trend will likely, finally, be disrupted in 2016, writes Kibbe.
