Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has become the second major candidate to seek the Republican Party presidential nomination. The senator announced his candidacy Tuesday in Louisville.

&6xy&JM]Tn9|.T

Mr. Paul is a first-term senator who was elected in 2010. His popularity grew in 2013 after he spoke in the Senate about his opposition to the U.S. use of drones to target terrorists. The 13-hour talk, called a filibuster, delayed a vote on President Obama's choice for director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
