U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) announced months ago that he will run for President of the United States of America. Senator Paul embarked on a Criminal Justice Reform Tour two years ago making stops at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).
Will the nation ‘Stand With Rand’ on criminal justice reform? Will the nation except a republican tackling the issue of disenfranchising voters with the majority being black? Will the nation except a republican stance on a ‘second chance’ for ex-offenders and life after incarceration? Will the nation accept the fact that, a republican, Senator Paul co-sponsored the Redeem Act with other democrats?
Will the nation accept that all citizens should vote the issues and not a particular party?
