Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has won the Conservative Political Action Conference’s presidential preference poll.
Thousands of activists who packed into suburban Washington’s national conservative summit gave Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul a narrow victory over Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in their unscientific presidential preference poll. Paul had 25 percent of the vote and Rubio 23 percent. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum was third with 8 percent.
Some District of Columbia Republicans will get a chance to show support for their preferred presidential candidates at an annual dinner set to take place.
