Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has several appearances in New Hampshire this week—appearances that are likely to further the impression that the Bowling Green Republican is planning to run for the White House.
Sen. Paul is scheduled to speak at an event Thursday in Manchester, New Hampshire, that is hosted by Generation Opportunity, a libertarian-leaning youth group the website Politico says has ties to the Koch brothers.
On Friday, Paul will headline the New Hampshire Republican Party’s Breakfast in the Granite State, a unity event following Tuesday’s state primary.
New Hampshire, of course, is one of a handful of early caucus and primary states that plays an outsized role in U.S. Presidential elections. Paul’s brand of libertarianism has many fans among Granite State Republicans, who are known for their independent streak.
Paul has said he will announce in early 2015 whether or not he is running for the White House in 2016.
