Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a favorite of the Republican Party’s libertarian and tea party wings, says he is considering a run for president in 2016, in part because doing so gives him a bigger platform to discuss national issues.

The first-term senator was asked at a Monitor-hosted breakfast for reporters about his thoughts about running for president. 

“You know, I want to be part of the national debate,” he said. “So whether I run or not, being considered is something that allows me to have I think a larger microphone.”

Later he added, “We are considering it.”
