MANCHESTER, N.H. — Potential presidential contender Rand Paul says conservatives need a bold message to “hit those who haven’t been listening” and to keep their political movement growing.

The Republican senator from Kentucky tells an audience of conservatives in New Hampshire that the GOP cannot be “the party of fat cats, rich guys and Wall Street.”

Paul says conservatives must carry messages of justice, concern for unemployed workers and against government surveillance — if they want to attract new people to the movement, including young people, Hispanics and blacks.

Paul says the conservative movement has never been about rich people or privilege, and that “we are the middle class.”
