Ron Paul's son might run for Senate

I am in general suspicious of political dynasties, especially in the United States. This, however, is one dynasty that I can get behind.

From Fox News:

Sen. Jim Bunning's decision not to seek re-election next year has paved the way for Ron Paul's son to make his first foray into national politics.

Rand Paul, a Kentucky ophthalmologist, has said he would seek his state's Republican nomination for senator only if Bunning didn't. On Monday, Bunning announced he would not seek a third term because of a lack of campaign funds.

But Paul has not fully committed to a Senate run.

"We're very close and probably there will be some announcement from us in a week to 10 days,"he told FOXNews.com.

Like "run" the whole thing! And without even getting elected. Impressive.

Yeah he has been teasing us for a while with this. He said if Bunning doesn't run he would start his race. Hopefully this is the case and the USA gets another thinker in Washington.

Rand Paul would be better than most of the folks there.

Since when has FOX NEWS ever reported anything credible? In American News you have FOX-dig up any dirt (whether it is true or not) on Democrats, MSNBC-Obama is the second coming of Christ and can't do anything wrong, and CNN(The Beat The Dead Horse Network)-that provides no opinion at all and has to ask the viewers what they should report.

It would be good to see another "Paul" in DC.
There's a serious shortage of real Republican Patriots on the beltway...
