Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor in MarylandSenator Rand Paul won a straw poll of conservative activists on Saturday, giving his potential bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 a boost, and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker came in second in a surprising show of strength. Whether the victory for the libertarian Paul will have long-lasting benefit is unclear as he is among more than a dozen potential candidates jockeying for position. Paul, a 52-year-old Kentucky Republican, outdistanced a host of other potential candidates by taking 25.7 percent of the vote at the Conservative Political Action Conference, a gathering of activists on Washington's outskirts of Washington. Texas Senator Ted Cruz came in third with 11.5 percent of the votes out of a total of 3,007 who registered votes at the CPAC gathering.
