Washington (CNN) - Texas Rep. Ron Paul re-launched his political operation this week, the latest sign he will once again pursue the Republican presidential nomination.
Paul has raised $100,000 in the past 48 hours, Jesse Benton, who serves as the congressman's political director, told CNN.
Paul's PAC, Liberty PAC, had just $73,000 in the bank on Wednesday. Paul is expected to make a decision about whether to run again for the Republican nomination before the summer, said Benton, who added that the congressman is still considering running for the open seat being vacated by retiring Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.
