Kentucky's junior senator, Rand Paul, was the narrow favorite for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination in a straw poll this weekend of over 3,000 conservative activists from around the country.

CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Committee) held a three-day gathering in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C.; and participants voted online for who they would like to see carry the presidential banner for the GOP in 2016.

First Lady Michelle Obama will hold Ohio campaign events Monday in Delaware and Cleveland Monday, two days after Mitt Romney makes stops in Lebanon and Portsmouth.
