Ron Paul Warns Rand: You Could Win in 2016



Former Congressman Ron Paul, who has run for president three times (once as a Libertarian, twice as a Republican), spoke last night to Jay Leno about what 2016 plans his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), might have.

Ron Paul said that he has not discussed a 2016 White House bid with his son, but did offer a warning.

From Politico:

Former Rep. Ron Paul has some advice for his son, Sen. Rand Paul, if he decides to run for president: Be careful.

But it might not be why you'd think.

"I would say be very cautious, you could get elected," the elder Paul, a Texas Republican, joked on "The Tonight Show" on Thursday night.
