Robert Paul Considering U.S. Senate Run in Texas!Submitted by RonPaulio on Fri, 04/15/2011 - 10:03
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.
Could there soon be a third member of the libertarian Paul family in Congress?
Robert Paul, a doctor who lives in Fort Worth, is saying maybe, telling a newspaper that he has “thought about running” for the seat representing Texas in the Senate that is being vacated by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who is not running for reelection.
