GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul hasn't had the best time so far in the polls, but tomorrow he'll be trying an experiment to connect with voters: live-streaming an entire today.
Paul announced on Twitter — complete with the hashtag #randlive — that he'll spend all of tomorrow live-streaming his day, from time in Iowa through tomorrow night's Democratic debate. According to a report on conservative news site Rare, Paul's live stream will be available on Facebook and Ustream.
How "behind the scenes" the stream really is remains to be seen, but a bizarro-world, Libertarian West Wing could really be something. Although, according to Rare, the Paul campaign's chief digital strategist sees a different point of reference: "It will be the Rand Paul campaign’s version of The Truman Show or EdTV," he reportedly said.
Tomorrow I am excited to bring my message of liberty to the country as the first Pres candidate to live-stream an entire day. #randlive— Dr. Rand Paul (@RandPaul) October 12, 2015
I will begin the day in the Quad Cities in Iowa and live-stream my day through the Democratic debate tomorrow night. #randlive— Dr. Rand Paul (@RandPaul) October 12, 2015
