In Case Filibuster Didn’t Make It Clear, Rand Paul Is Mulling a 2016 Run

By

Rand Paul's name isn't usually the first that comes up when people engage in extremely premature speculation about the next presidential race, however his amazing display of bladder control on Wednesday has put him closer to the top of the heap (for the next few days, at least). His comments in an interview with Politico on Thursday make it clear he isn't used to his new position yet. While most 2016 frontrunners are still playing coy, Paul confirmed "we're looking at it very seriously." He then went into a lengthy discussion of what needs to change in the Republican Party, and weirdly, the words "Hispanic voters" were never uttered.
