Sen. Rand Paul, heir to his father Rep. Ron Paul’s political establishment and following, said Friday that he is thinking about running for president, declaring that only a “libertarian-Republican” can unite the GOP.

“We are going to have to have somebody a little bit different than we’ve had in the past,” he told Tantaros on the show that replaced the Laura Ingraham Show on the Talk Radio Network. “Someone who can appeal to people in New England and on the West Coast. Someone who has a little more of a libertarian-Republican approach, I think, would have a better chance with independents and moderates.
