Not only Rand will have problems with his pro-Amnesty stand....a lot of his supporters were also his Dad’s supporters...and they are PO’d with Rand for supporting Romney before his Dad dropped out of the ‘12 race.

The GOP will have to run a conservative in the primary to keep that seat....Rand will not get the support like he did his last run

Unless Cruz jumps in (if he can) Rand is our best choice, especially compared to Rubio, Bush, Santorum, Paul Ryan etc. Rand isn't tying himself to an amnesty plan like Rubio.. Here is Rand's statement regarding amnesty:

I do not support amnesty, I support legal immigration and recognize that the country has been enriched by those who seek the freedom to make a life for themselves. However, millions of illegal immigrants are crossing our border without our knowledge and causing a clear threat to our national security. I want to work in the Senate to secure our border immediately. In addition, I support the creation of a border fence and increased border patrol capabilities.

Immigrants should meet the current requirements, which should be enforced and updated. I realize that subsidizing something creates more of it, and do not think the taxpayer should be forced to pay for welfare, medical care and other expenses for illegal immigrants. Once the subsidies for illegal immigration are removed, the problem will likely become far less common.

I support local solutions to illegal immigration as protected by the 10th amendment. I support making English the official language of all documents and contracts.

Millions crossing our border without our knowledge constitutes a clear threat to our nation's security. Instead of closing military bases at home and renting space in Europe, I am open to the construction of bases to protect our border.
