Sen. Rand Paul has given perhaps his most straightforward answer to questions about whether he will run for president.

The Kentucky Republican said the odds are "probably 50-50" that he will enter the race in an interview with a fourth-grader that was posted online Monday.

"We are thinking about it, and sort of looking at what it would take to run. It's a big job, but we probably won't make our decision for about a year," Paul told "Clay W." of Potter Gray Elementary School.

Story continues below video.



"It would take traveling around the country, it would mean I'd be home less time, get to see my kids [for] less time. And the people in the media, they get meaner and meaner when you run for president because they pick you apart and say your clothes don't look good, your hair looks bad, you need a haircut," he said.

"You get all that kind of grief from the media when you run for president," Paul added.
