In an interview with ABC News, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Bowling Green, said Republicans “aren’t maybe brave enough” to tackle the deficit.
When asked if he will someday run for President, Paul noted that he’s only been in Washington a month.
“Come back and ask me in a few months … We’ll see,” he said.
Later, he acknowledged that he would run for president if nominated.
Paul also embraced the label “true believer” and said staying true to the principles of the Tea Party movement is more important to him than being a Republican.
