WASHINGTON — Sen. Rand Paul’s advisers are preparing to launch a White House bid on April 7.
A senior Paul adviser said Tuesday the Kentucky Republican is set to make official his presidential ambitions in Louisville, Kentucky. He then is expected to visit early nominating states such as Iowa and New Hampshire.
The adviser demanded anonymity to speak ahead of Paul’s public announcement. The adviser adds that Paul could still pull the plug on a campaign, although that is not expected to happen.
Paul’s team has booked an event at Louisville’s Galt House hotel. His supporters have also received invitations to that site.
Details of the kick-off event were first reported by The Lexington Herald-Leader.
