KENTUCKY, August 25, 2014– Senator Rand Paul (R- Ky.) is almost certainly running for president, but what are Mrs. Paul’s thoughts regarding becoming the first lady? In an interview with WKYU FM, Kelly Paul shares what has been on her mind regarding Rand 2016.
Is it fair to say you don’t want your husband to run for President?
I wouldn’t say that. I would say though that we just have a lot more talking to do about the subject. I mean it’s something that you don’t go into lightly, being in the public eye is hard on a family and a marriage. I’m really proud of Rand, I think he’s doing an amazing job, so I’d love for him to be able to expand that but we still have a few hurdles to cross before we actually pull the trigger on it.
And that is the main hurdle, what it would do to you family dynamics, your family’s privacy?
I would say so, that’s probably the main decision any family has to make, really. It’s not a typical job where you just go to work and do your job, there are huge demands on your time and, obviously, there are going to be a lot of people attacking you…and that’s part of it, that’s part of politics, but it’s on such a high scale when you’re running for President, so we’re thinking about it but not 100% there yet obviously.
Which way is the Senator leaning?
You know, I think it just depends on the day. He’s really trying to do his job and make a difference right now and, when he’s invited places, because people are interested in him as a candidate, he’s going because that obviously sets the stage if he does decide to do it but we’re still pretty far out. We don’t talk about it that much to tell you the truth.
