article imageRand Paul considering 2016 presidential bid

By Alex Allen     Apr 17, 2013 in Politics
Senator Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, has officially stated that he is considering a 2016 presidential campaign. Paul is the son of former Congressman Ron Paul.
According to the Associated Press, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, the Republican who has been popular among conservatives, Tea Party members, and Libertarian-leaning individuals within the GOP, has officially stated that he is considering a run for the White House in 2016 but will not make his final decision before next year.
Paul, the son of former Congressman Ron Paul, likely gained traction with Tea Party Republicans following his recent filibuster on the Senate floor. In the historic speech that lasted nearly 13 hours, Paul discussed Barack Obama and his administration's use of drones and the constitutionality of drone striking American citizens. Recent polls show that a large number of Americans identify with the positions he took in his filibuster speech. During the speech, #standwithrand was a top trend on the social networking site Twitter.
Rand Paul attended the 2013 CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) and won the straw poll with 25%, closely followed by Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who got 23%.
