More than half of Kentucky Republicans think U.S. Sen. Rand Paul should run for president in 2016, although they're divided about whether Paul should seek re-election to the Senate at the same time.

According to a new Herald-Leader/WKYT Bluegrass Poll, 33 percent of Republican respondents said Paul should run for president, while 23 percent said he should seek the White House and defend his Senate seat at the same time.
