Texas Rep. Ron Paul says he will announce whether he intends to seek the 2012 Republican presidential nomination soon.
Mr. Paul seemed to to indicate that he may announce in the coming weeks. The Texas Republican said he has a book coming out April 19th, â€œcoinciding that with an announcement would be interesting even though plans have not been made to do such.â€
Mr. Paulâ€™s political advisor Jesse Benton told Fox News Wednesday the decision will be made within the next month.
Mr. Paul, who ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008, has repeatedly said he will only enter the 2012 campaign if he thinks he can win. Mr. Paulâ€™s son, Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul, has also floated the possibility of a presidential campaign, however, he has said he will not enter the race if his father pursues the nomination.
The Texas Republican congressman has raised upwards of $3 million in recent months, providing him with one of the largest fundraising bases. Mr. Paul has also performed well in a number of presidential straw polls in recent months.
That said, in his radio interview Tuesday, Mr. Paul said he has â€œa few things to iron out personallyâ€ before he makes the final call.
