Which Republicans voted to repeal 'don't ask, don't tell'?

The Paul votes comes as a surprise. Three years ago, as a presidential candidate, Paul told conservative radio host John Lofton that he supported Don't Ask Don't Tell.

Rand Paul replaces campaign manager

"I'm the new campaign manager in title, but this isn't a campaign shake-up," said Benton. "David Adams isn't being pushed out in any way. This is just a change in roles. I was just a general consultant, but I'll be taking the official title -- David will become campaign chairman. He'll be Rand's key liaison to groups here in Kentucky."

After the boos, a better reception for Ron Paul

Even when he was running for president, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) didn't really give presidential campaign speeches.He wasn't much for pointing people to social networks, asking for votes, or -- especially -- mentioning other candidates.
