I have been seeing/hearing this rumor a lot recently.
IMO, it is too early for a Rand Paul run. It was too early for a Barack Obama run for that matter, but Obama had been a State legislator before becoming a first term, two year Senator. Plus it is not fair to the voters of Kentucky.
I hope Ron Paul runs again. My concern is that this Rand talk might be a trial balloon of sorts from the Paul camp. I can’t imagine people close to Rand would float this rumor without the consent of his father.
I had assumed that another Ron Paul run was a virtual certainty. This has me worried that maybe he isn’t feeling up to another run.
