In first steps on campaign trail, Rand Paul shadowed by Iran deal

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), a 2016 Republican White House hopeful, gestures with his cell phone as he speaks at a campaign event in Milford, New HampshireBy Andy Sullivan MILFORD, N.H. (Reuters) – When Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky travels across the country this week as a newly minted presidential candidate, he will be greeted by $1 million worth of attack ads accusing him of being “wrong and dangerous” on Iran. It is an early sign that the unorthodox Republican – who criticized both Republicans and Democrats in his campaign announcement – may find himself an outlier within his own party when he argues that its limited-government ideals should apply to foreign policy as well as within the United States. Paul’s launch on Tuesday of his 2016 presidential campaign in Louisville, his home state’s biggest city, came days after a framework agreement struck between Iran and six major powers that aims to curb Iran’s nuclear program, while offering sanctions relief to Tehran. The group is headed by Rick Reed, a veteran Republican media strategist who has worked for South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham – a hawk who is considering a presidential bid of his own.
