Rand Paul Tells Voters To Run From Rerun Candidates

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky hasn't officially said whether he's running for president in 2016, but it appears that he believes America deserves a fresh set of candidates.

Paul, a first-term Republican senator, tweeted that campaigns by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney -- none of whom have officially announced a candidacy, despite widespread speculation that they will do so -- would represent "things to run from."

Signs that Paul is running for President, include recent hiresearlier this month, the Washington Post reported that Paul had hired Chip Englander as his campaign manager.  Englander, most recently oversaw Bruce Rauner's successful campaign for Illinois governor.

Then in Michigan, last summer he hired consultant John Yob as national political director and chief strategist of its Michigan operation.

Yob has previously served as national political director for John McCain during the 2008 primary season and ran state and national convention delegate operations for Rick Santorum in 2012.  In Michigan, he helped elect Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and Attorney General Bill Schuette in 2010. He also worked on the tea-party backed campaigns of Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell and Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle in 2010.

Most recently, Yob advised Republican primary campaigns by Nebraska Senate candidate Ben Sasse and Florida Rep. Curt Clawson.
