Paul the Younger is taking a lot of heat from his father’s loyalists (keyboard commandos).
To me, the score is 2 to 0. The number of statewide public elections Rand has won is 2, the number of statewide elections of any kind Ron has won is 0. And Rand has won both statewide elections in which he has been a participant — Ron has had many chances, starting with the Republican Primary for Texas U.S. Senate in 1984 (Phil Gramm won), his 1988 Libertarian Party campaign for President (he was on the ballot in most states), and all the primaries and caucuses in which he participated in the 2008 and 2012 Republican Presidential seasons.
There is a virtue in splitting the difference between ideological purity and retail politics.
