RAND PAUL-2016
Rand Paul says Ky. law won't block him from potential dual run for presidency, Senate in 2016

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, June 5, 2014 5:52 PM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul says a state law preventing candidates from having their names appear more than once on the ballot won't deter him from staging dual campaigns for Senate re-election and president — if he decides to make a bid for the White House in 2016.

Paul told The Associated Press on Thursday he's still discussing with his family on whether to enter the presidential race.

But he insisted the Kentucky ballot law won't be an obstacle. The Republican with significant tea party support kept open the option of mounting a court challenge seeking to have his name on the Kentucky ballot for both races.

Legislation aimed at letting Paul run for both offices passed the GOP-led state Senate this year, but died in the Democratic-run House.
