Ron Paul: Rand Will 'Probably' Run For President

Will Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul run for president in 2016? That all depends on who you ask. His father, Ron Paul, told CNN he “[thinks] he probably will,” adding that “he’s been on TV hinting that he very well might.”

His mother agrees. According to The Hill, she has previously said that her son’s candidacy “feels real.” On Monday, however, Paul said it was no “slam dunk.” He also admitted last week that his wife is not currently on board with the idea of a presidential run.

Last week, the Kentucky senator told an audience that his wife’s opinion would weigh heavily on his potential bid. While she is currently a “no” vote, Paul said he is trying to persuade her otherwise.

“I tell people that there are two votes in my family, and my wife has both of them, and both of them are 'no' votes right now,” he said last week. “So if I am a very able politician, I will tell you in a year whether I’m able to persuade my wife. Right now I don’t know yet, but I thank you for your interest.”

The advice his optimistic father gave him is that he needs to be careful. “He’s doing well, he might get elected, and that’s a great burden and a major responsibility.”
