Ron Paul Announces Exploratory Committee

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) officially announced on Tuesday that he is forming a presidential exploratory committee and introduced his Iowa leadership team, which consists of three members of the Iowa GOP's State Central Committee.

Drew Ivers, a longtime Hawkeye State GOP activist, will be reprising his 2008 role as Paul's Iowa chairman. David Fischer, the longest-serving member the Polk County GOP executive committee, and former Story County GOP chair A. J. Spiker will serve as vice chairmen.

This will be Paul's third presidential run: he ran as a Libertarian in 1988, then again as a Republican in 2008. Paul finished fifth in the Iowa Caucuses in 2008, getting 10 percent of the vote.
