Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has brought on Iowa Republican Party Chairman A.J. Spiker (R) as an adviser to his political action committee — the latest signal Paul is seriously weighing a presidential bid.

Spiker announced this weekend he was stepping down as head of the state party after years of clashes between his side and establishment Republicans close to Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R).

Spiker and other Ron Paul backers took over the Iowa GOP in 2012 in a push to send pro-Paul delegates to the Republican National Convention. They have fought with Branstad’s allies ever since, who gripe they haven’t raised enough for the state party. Pro-establishment delegates recently won a number of local caucuses, giving them a bigger voice in the party and threatening Spiker’s tenure.
