There’s one thing you can say for certain about the small-government, libertarian-leaning junior senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, who (presumably) would like to be the next president of the United States.

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with Maryanne Zeleznik this morning about where the Ohio governor's race stands, less than four months from election day.
