Facing questions about how his libertarian brand of Republicanism jibes with socially conservative Republicans, Senate candidate Rand Paul issued a statement today supporting today's Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity in schools, and "pledges to do everything in his power as a United States Senator to end abortion."
But when the National Right to Life committee sends out their candidate questionnaire, will Paul be able to agree with enough of the group's positions to earn their endorsement vs. Trey Grayson?
Here's the Paul campaign statement:
Tuesday October 20, 2009 is Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity in which students at nearly 4000 schools and numerous homeschoolers refrain from speaking for a day to draw attention to those children permanently silenced by the atrocity of abortion.
Participating students observe the day by not speaking and responding to questioners by distributing educational materials and praying for the victims of abortion.
Rand Paul supports the efforts of these students and pledges to do everything in his power as a United States Senator to end abortion.
