For the third year in a row, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has won the Conservative Political Action Conference's straw poll.
"Those who love liberty must rise to the occasion. Will you lovers of liberty will you rise to the occasion?" said Paul.
The poll is seen as an early way for the GOP to feel out how Presidential hopefuls will do with the conservative base, but it far from guarantees a GOP candidacy.
