According to the Federal Election Commission website, Rand Paul has officially filed for Presidency.
(Update: Not quite yet- It appears that Rand Paul filing for his 2016 presidency run has been a hoax floating around the internet - although it is heavily speculated that he will commit to the race later this year )
Libertarians across the country can finally breathe easier knowing that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has finally decided to jump into the presidential race for 2016.
This decision has been long awaited for Democrats and Republicans alike for Rand's strong beliefs in expanding economic opportunity while focusing a lot of attention on correcting inequalities in the criminal justice system. His father, Ron Paul, was known to have a strong following from both major political parties and even had the highest support of any candidate in the 2008 and 2012 elections from active duty military personnel.
