Washington (CNN) – Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, said Sunday he doesn't think the United States fits into a left-right paradigm - and he has some ideas on how to make the Republican Party more appealing to voters.
"I think the Republican Party needs to find out how to be bigger, and I think I do bring some ideas to that. So I've talked to the Republican National Committee, the Republican National Committee chairman about things I think we need to do to be competitive," Paul said on "Fox News Sunday."
"I think some of those ideas are a more libertarian-Republican approach to things, and I think a lot of young people are attracted to that. And our party could grow if we accepted something maybe a little different than the cookie-cutter conservatives that we've put out in the past."
The GOP released a report Monday which included hundreds of recommendations aimed at improving perceptions of the party reception and appealing to specific demographic groups that voted overwhelmingly for Democrats in 2012.
It's not known what exactly Paul said to the RNC, but perhaps one of his ideas may be to run for president himself. The senator has said he wants to be part of the national debate but isn't sure if that means running for president or not.
