    His seat is safe, Rand has to be much more low key running a State wide race, that is why I detest these type divisive issues that cloud national politics, a good man can lose because he might not line up just right on the gay or mosque issue when so much else needs our attention.

    And I so respect him for that. I love this line in his speech on this.

    “We now have an epidemic of “sunshine patriots” on both the right and the left who are all for freedom, as long as there’s no controversy and nobody is offended."

    That's absolutely true. Though, 'divisive issues' are better know as wedge issues, i.e. guns, gays and god. All of which have been used of late by demagogues.
