At a dinner for Senator John Cornyn (R,Tx) on Saturday, Senator Rand Paul (R,Ky) predicted that his home state of Texas could turn blue within the next ten years if the Republican Party does not change, according to ABC News, Feb. 9, 2014. Paul cited the GOP's need to become more diverse, more tolerant of people who are different, and more inclusive of everyday Americans, including those who have tattoos, earrings and regular attire. Paul strongly emphasized the GOP's need to make the changes necessary to "look like America":

“We need to have people with ties and without ties, with tattoos and without tattoos; with earrings, without earrings. We need a more diverse party. We need a party that looks like America.”

Paul was born and grew up in the Houston area and graduated from Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He started his career as an obstetrician and then pursued a political career in Kentucky, first serving as a longtime member of Congress and then a United States Senator from the Bluegrass State. He is said to be readying himself for a tough Presidential race in 2016, beginning with the primaries, the convention and the fight for the nomination.
