Sen. Rand Paul
(R-Ky.) said yesterday that he is “seriously thinking about”
running for president in 2016, but added that “I’m also very
serious about the family considerations.”
The news comes a few days after Paul said that
his wife opposes him running.
(Reuters) – Republican Senator Rand Paul said on Sunday he is
giving serious thought to a run for the presidency in 2016 but
might decide against it because of the burden a campaign would
cause for his family.
“Well, you know, the thought has crossed my mind,” the Kentucky
senator said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And I am seriously thinking
“But I’m also very serious about the family considerations.”
Paul, a favorite of the conservative Tea Party movement, said
politics had become “uncivil” and that sometimes “you have a good
week” and other times “the haters and the hacks go after you.”
