Project 21’s Butler on “Hannity”: Paul Visit to Howard Was “Courageous”

Project 21 member Charles Butler, in a debate with Michael Meyers of the New York Civil Rights Coalition about the impact of Senator Rand Paul’s recent speech at the traditionally-black Howard University, called Paul’s conservative outreach effort to minorities “a courageous thing” that yielded “great questions” and “great answers.”

During this segment on the 4/11/13 edition of “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, Charles compared Senator Paul to President Obama, noting: “What Rand did was to reach out — unlike other people… All Obama is doing is campaigning.  He’s a continuing campaign.”
