Sparse crowd hears Rand Paul's Urban League speech

Kentucky's junior senator, in preparation for what increasingly looks like a 2016 presidential run, spoke to a small crowd at a National Urban League gathering Friday. He won polite applause as he spoke against disparity in drug sentencing, his plan for "Economic Freedom Zones" and his efforts to restore felons' voting rights while adding a new section about education.
