When Rand Paul put out the call to design his next t-shirt, he didn’t expect such an overwhelming response. There were 160 entries from across the nation, which were narrowed down to 10 by a campaign team committee. Thousands of votes later, one t-shirt, designed by Chris Mandle of Mandle Design was the winner.
His design, which simply said, “The NSA knows I bought this t-shirt.” was simple and funny. When asked about his inspiration for the design, he said, “I was looking for a quick impact message that was a little tongue-in-cheek and would make people laugh when they saw it, even though it reflects a legitimate concern of many voters.”
A close second was Rand Paul in a John Paul Jones look alike outfit saying a line from his announcement speech, “We have come to take our country back.” Third and fourth were more simple. They both had head and shoulder’s images of Rand Paul. Third has the words, “Liberty Bro” and fourth simply says, “Fearless.”
“The t-shirt design contest was a huge success. The campaign is so pleased with it that we’re going to have another one in the future, perhaps with coffee mugs or bumper magnets,” said Steve Grubbs, store manager for Rand Paul.
