Rand Paul tweets, ‘Thousands of people have been asking if I’d run for Senate leadership’

Last month, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky announced that his current term as Senate GOP leader will be his last. While GOP Sens. John Cornyn of Texas and John Thune of South Dakota have both thrown their hats into the ring to succeed McConnell in the role, some people would like Kentucky’s other U.S. senator, Rand Paul, to be the next Senate Republican in the leadership post.

“Thousands of people have been asking if I’d run for Senate leadership…” Paul tweeted.

“Please!!!!” Harmeet Dhillon responded, expressing her support for the prospect.

“YES….. PLEASE!!! We need your leadership in the Senate,” Juanita Broaddrick tweeted.

“You’d have my support,” tweeted former Rep. Justin Amash, who has mounted a bid in Michigan for a U.S. Senate seat

“Would absolutely love to see it,” David Limbaugh wrote in reply to Paul.

The senator posted a poll on X that asked people if they would like him, Cornyn, or Thune “to be the next Senate leader,” and so far, Paul has earned more than 96% of the more than 135,000 votes.

“100,000 votes, 97% oppose the status quo, if only we could hold the leadership vote online…No matter, at least the establishment knows their popularity wanes outside of DC!” Paul tweeted.

Like McConnell, Cornyn and Thune both voted last month in favor of a measure that would, in part, involve providing more U.S. assistance for Ukraine. Paul voted against it.
