Rand Paul Ends Daylong NSA 'Filibuster'

"Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who took to the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon to demand a halt to National Security Agency collection of ordinary Americans' phone data, ended his daylong speech just before midnight. Paul, who has made NSA spying a theme in his 2016 campaign for president, delayed a vote on an unrelated trade bill with his 10 1/2-hour speech, which he quit at 11:49 p.m., 12 minutes before meeting the technical definition of filibuster."
