FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Yet another Republican is considering a run for U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning's seat.
The latest is Rand Paul, son of U.S. Rep. and former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas. He told The Associated Press on Thursday that he would consider entering the race, but only if Bunning drops out.
Paul, a Bowling Green eye surgeon, is complimentary of Bunning and stressed that he is in no way encouraging the 77-year-old baseball icon not to run.
Bunning has won election to the Senate twice, both times by razor-thin margins. Some Republican leaders have been sending not-so-subtle messages that they want him to retire.
The Hall of Famer insists he has no plans to leave the race.
Rand Paul has never held an elected office.
This is great News everyone! Rand Paul is a Constitutionalist and Libertarian at heart just like Ron Paul and he could really make a difference in the state. If he runs we need to put tons of support behind him. I honestly wish he would run against MITCH..
