Dead for now: Kentucky bill allowing twin Rand Paul 2016 runsSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Sat, 04/19/2014 - 08:44
(CNN) - A bill allowing Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul to simultaneously run for the presidency and re-election to his U.S. Senate seat in 2016 died earlier this week when the Kentucky legislature adjourned for the year.
The bill had passed the Republican-controlled state Senate, but stalled in the Democratic-controlled state House of Representatives.
The state's Democratic governor, Steve Beshear, is highly unlikely to call the legislature into special session to consider the measure. And that means if Paul's allies in the state legislature want to try again, they're going to have to wait until the legislature reconvenes next January
