Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky says he is interested in running for president in 2016.
“I’m not going to deny that I’m interested,” Paul told ABC’s Jonathan Karl in a segment called “Spinners and Winners.”
Paul, who was first elected to the Senate in 2010 and has been frequently mentioned as a possible presidential candidate, said he hasn’t made a final decision yet on whether to run in 2016.
“I think it’s a little too early,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.”
After a bruising Nov. 6 election, Paul told ABC the Republican Party needs to change some of its stances, although not what he called the party’s core message of encouraging economic growth to generate government revenue.
“I think we have to go in a different direction because we’re just not winning and we have to think about some different ideas,” Paul told ABC.
