5 Politicians to Watch in 2014

It's been awhile, but my latest post for The 9s magazine is now posted.

Here's a teaser...
Even though 2014 is a mid-term election year – “off-cycle” as some might say – there will still be plenty of intrigue in the political universe, especially as we look ahead to the presidential election of 2016. For serious candidates taking aim at the White House, this year will be a time to ramp up their activity in strategic locations as they look to build up a political and fundraising edge. Here are five names to watch in 2014 in the build up to 2016.

1) Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)

The junior senator from Kentucky has made it pretty obvious what his intentions are without ever saying it explicitly. Anyone seriously watching knows that all the signs point to Rand running for the Republican nomination for president the next go-round. A conservative-libertarian from Kentucky doesn’t speak to college crowds in Berkley, California, or make friends with his senior senatorial colleague who just happens to be considered an establishment Republican, while at the same time appealing to his base and attending state Lincoln Days (a major annual Republican dinner) around the country, unless that same conservative-libertarian is running for a major office. So, put Senator Paul at the top of your “watch list” for 2014.
