Another CPAC, another Paul.

The American Conservative Union, which has provided a friendly forum for the likes of Texas Rep. Ron Paul and other candidates for national office, will hear from the former congressman’s son, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, at its CPAC conference in March.

Paul will be the featured speaker at CPAC 2013, American Conservative Union ACU Chairman Al Cardenas says. “In just two years, Rand Paul has already established himself as a strong, independent voice for conservatives in the U.S. Senate.”

A voice whom, like his father, may be ready for a hand at Republican presidential primary politics.

Paul was a practicing ophthalmologist in Kentucky for many years, his father an obstetrician for many more in Texas. The father wowed the straw-poll crowd at CPAC’s last presidential campaign gathering. The son hopes to do the same.

The 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference will be held March 14-16, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center near Washington.
