Robert Paul considers jumping into U.S. Senate race in TexasSubmitted by teeowe on Thu, 04/14/2011 - 21:14
First it was just Ron Paul.
An obstetrician/gynecologist and libertarian-leaning Republican, Paul of Lake Jackson was elected to the U.S. House more than 20 years ago and maintains a devout following of those who echo his anti-war, anti-tax, limited government beliefs.
Then he was joined by his son, Rand, a Republican ophthalmologist, who became a darling of the Tea Party movement in Kentucky and was elected last year to serve as the Bluegrass State's junior senator. He was sworn in to the U.S. Senate in January.
Now a third Paul - this one Robert Paul, a doctor who runs a family medical practice in Benbrook and lives in Fort Worth - is mulling over whether to make his own congressional bid.

"I have thought about running," Robert Paul, one of five children, told the Star-Telegram. "I am very happy as a physician, but (I) have a lot of concern about the debt."
