Rand Paul: I Haven’t ‘Really Thought About’ Vice Presidential Bid

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul says he hasn’t “really thought about” a possible vice presidential bid this year, but also wouldn’t rule out the possibility.

Paul, speaking Thursday morning in Louisville, says he’s read the “Internet chatter” about the possibility of being tapped as the GOP nominee’s running mate, but for now is focused nationally on helping his father’s campaign.

The Republican from Bowling Green made his comments Thursday morning at the St. Matthews Community Center in Louisville after saying his office would give $500,000 in office funds back to the U.S. Treasury.

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas finished second in the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary. Rand Paul said the presidential race is now between his father and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
