Rand Paul: 'It's not a slam dunk that I'm running'

Lexington Herald-LeaderDecember 9, 2013 

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul warned pundits Monday not to read too much into comments he made about his wife possibly vetoing a run for the White House in 2016, but he did say "it's not a slam dunk that I'm running."

Paul, who has said repeatedly that he is seriously considering a run, told the Lexington Herald-Leader that comments he has made about his wife, Kelly, being opposed to the idea are largely a joke.

"There's two votes in my family," Paul told the audience at the Detroit Economic Club last week. "My wife has both of them, and both of them are 'no' votes right now."

Paul has used some variation of that joke whenever he has been asked about a 2016 run while traveling around Kentucky.

On Fox News Sunday, Paul reiterated that he is considering a run, but he added that he is "also very serious about the family considerations."
