Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) late Tuesday said he probably won’t make a decision about whether to run for president in 2016 until early next year.
“I haven't decided yet but I'm thinking about it and discussing it with family. We won't make a decision probably until early next year,” Paul said on Fox News’s “On the Record.”
He has previously said he would decide after the 2014 midterm elections.
“Marco and I are good friends,” Paul said. “So, I think I would be the first to know if he were taking a shot at me ... I think, no matter who runs, I'm sort of a Republican who believes in peace in commerce with all Republicans and I'm going to try to keep it on a high plane.”
Without mentioning Paul by name, Rubio said he doesn’t think it’s effective to run for president and another office simultaneously.
