Former State Representative Charles Key today issued an official endorsement for Senator Rand Paul for President 2016 saying,
Our political system is broken and can only be fixed by someone who understands our political system. I am voting for Rand Paul for President because he is the only candidate who understands and is committed to our Constitutional Republican form of government. He has refused to compromise or pander to special interest groups or the media to get their support. Isn’t that what most Americans want? We don’t need someone who talks tough and pushes emotional hot buttons. We need someone who has proven he is tough by staying consistent and fighting for our God given rights.
