Ames, Ia. – If Ron Paul runs for president again, he won’t receive the same brush-off he experienced from the Republican establishment four years ago, his son said Saturday.

“I don’t think there would be any chance they’d exclude my dad now,” said Rand Paul, an eye surgeon and a U.S. senator from Kentucky. “I think everyone in politics, whether it’s explicit or not, has their own agenda and if they can exclude you, they will. I don’t think that will happen again.”
The younger Paul, in Iowa on Saturday for several events, said he’s not sure if his father, a U.S. representative from Texas, will make a third bid for the White House.
“I’ve told people that I will consider it if he doesn’t run, but I think my guess is he’s leaning in the direction of running,” Rand Paul told The Des Moines Register in an interview in Ames. “But I can’t, and don’t, speak for him.”
