Asked by the Lexington Herald-Leader if he sees the tea party movement turning into a third party, Paul said, "I don't think so. Right now it is a great advantage to us in the Republican Party because it has grown the Republican Party."
 
Tea party-backed congressmen have helped hold their GOP colleagues’ feet to the fire when it comes to spending cuts.
 
Paul has said he would vote against the $61 billion in spending cuts approved by the House last week because they don’t go far enough.
