Rand Paul Next?
Rand Paul will wait until just after Easter to officially announce that he is seeking the Republican nomination for 2016, this according to anonymous sources cited by the Washington Times.
Rand Paul will formally declare his candidacy for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination with a five-state, five-day announcement tour next month, Republicans knowledgeable about the Kentucky senator’s plans told The Washington Times.
Mr. Paul will make his announcement first in Louisville at noon on April 7, then head to New Hampshire on April 8, Charleston, S.C., on April 9, Iowa City on April 10 and Las Vegas on April 11.
The Times cites campaign veterans who say the ambitious rollout is not only unusual but also requires a strong war chest and deep in logistical know how.
Paul is the favorite of many libertarian minded voters including much of the small but devoted following his father built up over his years in Congress and during his presidential bids.
