    Take this with a grain of salt, but Eric Bolling from Fox News tweeted this earlier.

    I doubt Rand has made an official decision this early, considering anything could happen in the mean time. Regardless, he's certainly setting the stage for a run.

    He'd also, presumably, be running for re-election in the Senate as well, however, and that seems like a lot of work.

    I'd take him over almost all other Republican candidates. He seems to not be faking it.

    I'm sorry but we're currently enduring amateur hour. Lets see what he actually does in his next term before we jump on some silly bandwagonm

    I'll vote for him. It will be the first time I've voted Republican for president since 2000.

    Wrong. Paul was naive. Rand is an amateur who COULD become something more despite his father.

    Rand candidacy as GOP or 3rd party will guarantee a Democratic victory.

    Not jumping on a bandwagon. Right now I wouldn't vote for Rand.

    Maybe they'll nominate Mitt again so that they have a chance.

    Oh wait...

    Way to early to be discussing who is going to run for President next time around.
    Obama has not even been inaugurated yet and we are discussing candidates for 2016.
    Give it a Rest
