Rand Paul heads for speech date in New Hampshire
BOSTON — Republican Sen. Rand Paul is set to appear in New Hampshire next month, becoming the first potential 2016 presidential candidate to deliver a formal speech in the state likely to host the nation's first presidential primary.
The New Hampshire Republican Party confirmed on Wednesday that the first-term senator from Kentucky will deliver the keynote address at its first Liberty Dinner on May 20. The location has yet to be determined.
“Sen. Rand Paul has been a leader in the fight for smaller government, lower taxes and fiscal responsibility in Washington,” said state GOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. “I am honored that Sen. Paul has agreed to address our party and I look forward to welcoming him to the Granite State.”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is also scheduled to attend the New Hampshire event.
Paul, the son of former Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, himself a veteran of presidential campaigns, has said he's “seriously considering” running for the White House.
