Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, and his sons may be setting up the family as the next American political dynasty in the wake of the Kennedys and Bushes, Politico reports. Ron Paul is considering another bid for the presidency next year, and his son Rand, a freshman GOP senator from Kentucky, also is floating the idea of a presidential campaign.

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.
