Rand Paul: Republican Party is too white and it won’t survive this way

Rand Paul said at Harvard on Friday night that in order for the GOP to survive, it needs to look like the rest of America. But at the moment, he said, it’s all white people:

I tell people that the Republican party needs to look like the rest of America to have a chance. That means with tattoos and without tattoos; with earrings and without earrings; Black, White, Brown.

You go to a Republican event and it’s all white people — not because we are excluding anybody, but we haven’t done a good enough job of encouraging people to come into our party.
