Sen.

The Hill reached out to a representative at Paul’s leadership PAC to find out where the Kentucky Republican stands on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which has created a firestorm in Indiana since a version was signed into law last week.


“Senator Paul is out of pocket with family and not doing any media all week long,” the representative responded.

Paul is a regular guest on cable news shows, and his press shop is typically quick to explain to reporters where he stands on issues driving the news cycle.

However, Paul this week is apparently taking the opportunity to enjoy a break from the spotlight, before he officially takes the presidential plunge.

The Kentucky Republican has an event scheduled April 7 at the Galt House Hotel in Lexington, Ky., where he is widely expected to announce that he’s running for president.

In the four days that follow, Paul will visit the four first-in-the-nation primary and caucus states of New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada.
