ABC News has the blow-by-blow:
Sen. Rand Paul’s so-called “filibuster” against the budget deal, a move his campaign hyped repeatedly and which the Kentucky senator used as a rallying cry at last night’s debate, wasn’t a filibuster at all.
In fact, it wasn’t even a long speech.
The presidential hopeful took to the Senate floor at 2:46 p.m. and ended his remarks less than twenty minutes later.
While Rand and his campaign never officially declared he would perform a marathon speech against the legislation, he oversold its impact during last night's Republican presidential debate, mentioning the filibuster in both his opening and closing statements.
