Kentucky’s junior U.S. Senator is headed back to New England. 

Republican Rand Paul will be in Massachusetts on Friday to speak at the Harvard Institute of

Politics.  The head of the institute is former Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson who lost the GOP Senate nomination to Paul in 2010.

"We are pleased to welcome my fellow Kentuckian Senator Rand Paul to Harvard," Grayson said in a statement. "One of the most compelling people in politics right now, Senator Paul has appeal throughout many constituencies - including outside of the traditional Republican coalition and with younger voters in the millennial generation. We are looking forward to him engaging with our students and the Harvard community."

On Saturday, Senator Paul travels to Maine to speak at the Republican Party's state convention. 

The Bowling Green Republican is mulling a run for president, but he won’t make an announcement until after the November mid-term election.
