Rand Paul attempts to expand GOP’s political base in California

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, the potential Republican presidential candidate, urged California Republicans to attract new voters by pushing for expanded voting rights.

Addressing nearly 400 delegates at the state party convention late last week, Pail urged to make the Republican Party for restoring more voting rights, adding that it would bring more voters to the party.

Pushing for expanded voting rights is something typically associated with the Democratic Party, which prompted Paul to admit that some people would say that Republicans were going to be Democrats.

Delivering his speech, he said, "Let's be the party that actually wants to extend the right to vote. Some people say, well these people are going to be Democrats. Let's be the party for voting rights, let's be the party for restoring more voting rights, then more people will come to our party."

To expand his party's base in California, Paul also announced plans to open an office in the San Francisco Bay area for his political operations.

He also used the opportunity to accuse President Barack Obama of allegedly creating a lawless atmosphere in Washington.

Paul's efforts to expand the GOP's base in the Golden State are being seen as his preparations for his possible 2016 presidential bid.
