How Rand Paul plans to run for both president and Senate

February 12, 2015

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has asked the Republican Party of Kentucky to create a presidential caucus in 2016 instead of holding the traditional primary as a workaround to a state law that prohibits him from running for the Senate and the White House simultaneously.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported on Thursday that Paul sent a letter to the Kentucky GOP’s central committee requesting the change, arguing that it will prevent a “costly and time-consuming legal challenge.”

Kentucky law bars a candidate from appearing on the same ballot for multiple offices. Paul has already announced that he’s running for reelection to the Senate, but he’s also gearing up for a presidential run.

    Sen Paul may be able to return to being a doctor full-time after Jan 2017. While trying to get the rules changed to accommodate his political wishes he is making quite a number of his 2010 base quite angry. I know, I am one of them. Though he may be successful in his efforts to run for two offices at the same time he may also lose the opportunity to serve in either.
