Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Friday night that he would take another stand against what he called "illegal NSA spying."

"Tonight my filibuster continues," the Republican presidential candidate wrote on Facebook. "See you late tonight - and possibly even overnight."

"I will stand up for your rights and those of every American," Paul continued. "It is time to end illegal NSA spying. I am insisting on a full debate and amendments on NSA reform, not just once again ramming through the so-called Patriot Act. Like and Share if you will stand with me tonight in defense of the Bill of Rights!"

The senator made news earlier this week when he stood on the Senate floor and spoke out against the renewal of the Patriot Act for approximately 10 hours and 30 minutes. Previous to that, he had also filibustered for nearly 13-hours over his concern about drone strikes against U.S. citizens.
