Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says he’s considering a run for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. He headlined a fundraiser for Iowa Republicans Friday night in Cedar Rapids.
He may be picking up where his father, former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tx.), left off his 2012 campaign.
The Republican National Convention is underway in Florida, and while Iowa may not have the largest delegation, it’s still getting a lot of attention because of Iowa’s swing-state status.
The delegation also has been the source of controversy within the party, because most of its members have supported Texas Congressman Ron Paul.
Iowa Public Radio's Sarah McCammon speaks with delegation chairman Drew Ivers, who's also the former chairman of Paul’s Iowa campaign.
