Meanwhile, another of Ron Paul’s sons, Texas doctor Robert Paul, hasn’t ruled out running for senator next year in his home state.
Politico calls the family “the libertarian Kennedys.”
Paul the patriarch says he never had the idea of a family dynasty in mind. “I was delighted when I heard he was going to medical school,” Paul quipped about Rand.
