Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) isn't playing it coy on the topic of his presidential aspirations.
Asked by ABC's Jonathan Karl about a potential White House bid in 2016, Kentucky's junior senator and the son of a former presidential candidate didn't hide the fact that he's considering a run.
"I'm not going to deny that I'm interested," Paul told Karl. Paul qualified the remark by asserting that he is not ready to make a decision yet and said that his party will have to make adjustments before the next presidential election cycle.
"I think we have to go a different direction because we're just not winning and we have to think about some different ideas," Paul said.
