Rand Paul: Presidential announcement likely in March, April

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said he is likely to announce whether he’ll run for president in 2016 sometime in March or April from his home state of Kentucky.

The Kentucky Republican told reporters after a Friday speech in Louisville that he was getting closer to making a decision, but all signs point to Paul launching a campaign. Next month, he will ask the state Republican Party to create a presidential caucus in 2016. That way, Paul could run for president and re-election to his Senate seat simultaneously without appearing on the primary ballot for two offices. That’s banned by Kentucky law.

Paul had a series of events in snow-covered Kentucky this week, capped by a scheduled appearance at Sullivan University to discuss his proposed reforms to the criminal justice system.
