Rand Paul, not Scott Walker, does the best against Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin

Posted on

Rand Paul is the best-performing Republican against Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head matchup in Wisconsin, according to a poll released yesterday from Marquette University.

This goes against the conventional wisdom that argues Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who has won three statewide elections in five years, would do the best.

Here are the results of the head to head matchups tested in the poll:

Rand Paul to kick off 2016 bid April 7 with ambitious five-state tour: Kentucky senator shows organization muscle with debut

Mr. Paul will make his announcement first in Louisville at noon on April 7, then head to New Hampshire on April 8, Charleston, S.C., on April 9, Iowa City on April 10 and Las Vegas on April 11.

PAUL: I don’t think the Clintons should be above the law. I don’t think convenience should trump national security. The only way we get to the truth is by an independent investigation. This is a couple that have been raising money from foreign countries.

So did she delete those? “Trust me that I’m doing the right thing.” I don’t know, my sense of trust is a little bit lost. I oppose this abuse of power with every ounce of energy that I have.
