Ron Paul’s Statement On His Son Rand Paul

In response to reports that his son, Dr. Rand Paul, is being encouraged to run for Senate, Congressman Ron Paul issued the following statement.

“I’ve always encouraged my children to participate in the public debate. Should Senator Bunning decide not to run, I think Rand would make a great US Senator.

I, like Rand, have been impressed with Senator Bunning’s opposition to the Bank Bailout. I think the Republican Party should be supportive of Senator Bunning and not try to push him out of office.

Should Senator Bunning decide to retire, I think it is important to have a conservative Republican and taxpayer advocate in the race.”
