Rand Paul on Ron Paul

By on 7.12.11 | 1:36PM

Ron Paul announced earlier today that he will not be running for reelection to his House seat, focusing instead on his 2012 Republican presidential campaign. In an interview with a local publication, Paul said it was time to change tactics.

The torch will in all likelihood be passed to his son, Sen. Rand Paul, who released this statement: "History will record the legislative record of Ron Paul as an extraordinary one - perhaps unparalleled. There probably has never been a more consistent believer in limited government in Congress. America deserves a statesman like Ron Paul as her president, a man I am proud to call my father."
