Ron Paul Considers Another Run for the White House
Posted on Dec 13, 2010
The iconoclastic congressman is riding high in the wake of tea party hype and he tells The New York Times his chances of running again for the presidency are “at least 50-50.”
It will be interesting to see how Republicans handle their star libertarian, who is not one to shush and toe the party line, as he takes his place in the sun.
The New York Times via Political Wire:
On Web sites for Ron Paul fans, there are urgent pleas for a father-son (or son-father) “Paul/Paul 2012” ticket. But in an interview, the senior Mr. Paul seemed taken by surprise by the suggestion of teaming up. While he is bursting-proud of his son, he is not necessarily ready to yield the spotlight: He is pondering another presidential run on his own.
“I’d say it’s at least 50-50 that I’ll run again,” he said, adding that he would look at where the economy is. (Aides add that it would depend a lot on what his wife, Carol, says.)
