The Washington Examiner reports:
Rebekah Johansen Bydlak is on track to become the youngest female congresswoman in United States history. The conservative millennial is running for an open seat in Florida's 1st Congressional District and has already gained the support of constitutional conservatives like Sen. Rand Paul and Reps. Justin Amash and Thomas Massie. Now she's earned the endorsement of the original liberty congressman, Ron Paul.
"I am pleased to endorse Rebekah Bydlak for Congress," Ron Paul said in a statement on Tuesday. "Rebekah's commitment to and experience in advancing the principles of liberty show that she is the type of leader the GOP, Florida and the country need."
Is she the real deal? Probably not.
She sure looks as though she is couching her policies in a way to get elected rather than as a full out libertarian.
She, for example, has made caring for government-trained killers a top priority. And she talks about "fixing" healthcare rather than getting government completely out of the sector. All hedged positions.
She will make a good politician. Maybe not a good libertarian.
Said to see a 25-year old couch her positions in the hedged fashion of a 40-year career politician.
