Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Friday that he would seek reelection in 2016, even as he’s widely seen as having interest in a presidential run that year.
Paul informed reporters of his decision before a local GOP dinner, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported .
The first-term senator did not rule out a presidential bid in 2016, but said that, for now, he is only certain about running for another Senate term.
“For now, we know for sure is we’re going to run for the U.S. Senate,” Paul said at the Woodford County, Ky., Republican Party Reagan Dinner, according to  The Daily Independent in Ashland, Ky. “The other decision can come later.”
