Paul Still Weighing Dual Run

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told the AP that "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 run for the White House in 2016."

Said Paul: "We do think about it, but ultimately it's not something that will probably deter the process, if we make a decision."

"Kentucky lawmakers considered legislation this year that would have relieved Paul from the potential quandary. The GOP-led state Senate passed a bill that would have revised the ballot law so as not to apply to candidates running for president or vice president. The measure died in the Democratic-run House."
