Rand Paul Looks to Michigan to Begin His Presidential Campaign?

It looks like U. S. Senator Rand Paul is gearing up for a presidential run.  The Kentucky Republican has hired John Yob, a Michigan strategist, to begin laying the groundwork.

Rand picks proven strategist from Michigan is reporting that Yob, who heads up Strategic National Consulting in Grand Rapids, worked for John McCain and Rick Santorum in previous races.  He also is credited with helping a ‘then-unknown” Rick Snyder come out of nowhere to win election in 2010.

The report indicates that Yob will serve as national political director and chief Michigan strategist for his RANDPAC political action committee.  The RANDPAC has so far spent time backing U. S. Senate candidates like Terri Lynn Land.

Michigan is considered a key player in the mid-term elections where Democrats could be vulnerable for the first time in years in a Congressional Senate race.

The opening comes from the retirement of prominent Democratic Senator Carl Levin who announced his retirement leaving the seat open for the first time in decades.
