Ron Paul: Rand Paul will “probably” run for president
Speaking on CNN on Monday, former Republican Texas congressman Ron Paul said he thinks his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, will "probably" run for president in 2016.
"I think he probably will. I mean, he’s been on TV hinting that he very well might,” said Paul, before adding, "“I think he is handling himself quite well.”
While Paul himself has run for president multiple times, he told CNN that the era of his giving his son such consequential advice had long since passed.
"Well, I think he’s going to make up his own mind. And I had my opportunity to give him advice when he was much younger," Paul said. "“He’s been a pretty independent person, which you would expect, and he’s very libertarian-like. And, therefore, he will make up his own mind.”
