Like it or not, the 2016 Republican primary infighting has already begun to heat up. You’ve got Govs. Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie, Mike Pence and Scott Walker working the crowd at the Aspen Institute. You have Sen. Tedd Cruz, former Sen. Rick Santorum, and yes, the always predictable Donald Trump testing out the fried butter in Iowa. And most interestingly as of late, the growing clamor of support for none other than Rand Paul.
In case you missed it, Sarah Palin appeared on another cable network this week to espouse her support for “Team Rand.” “I’m on Team Rand,” the Tea Party pundit said on Fox News. “Rand Paul understands. He gets the whole notion of don’t tred on me government. Where as Chris Christie’s for big government and trying to go along to get along, in so many respects.”
And msnbc’s own Chris Matthews made this pretty bold prediction:
So, fellow Republicans, let’s all stop pointing our weapons at each other, and focus more on what we actually agree on. Because in the end, that’s just good gun safety. And more importantly, it’s our path back to being the majority party again.
