Kentucky Senator Rand Paul announced his candidacy on April 7, 2015 on his website. The 52 year-old former ophthalmologist is the son of Ron Paul, the former U.S. Representative for Texas and two-time presidential candidate who ran in 1988 as the nominee for the Libertarian party. 

Sen. Paul is best known for his own libertarian points of view, especially in the realms of foreign policy, defense spending, and the size and scope of government.
