Ron Paul not looking to run for Senate

I initially predicted that Ron Paul "probably won't run," but according to National Journal:

A Senate run "only crosses my mind because people ask me about it," said Paul, whose son and fellow Republican, Rand Paul, was sworn in as Kentucky's junor senator earlier this month. "I don't think it's a real possibility."

Paul probably doesn't want to get too distracted from the fun he's planning to have badgering the Ben Bernanke from his perch as chairman of the subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve. Still, while he's not thinking about it now, that's not to say he won't in the future. The filing deadline is about 350 days away.
