CHICAGO (AP) - Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is taking his message of a more inclusive Republican Party to Chicago, where he promoted school choice for poor families and planned to meet students at University of Chicago.

Paul is taking the stage this hour at Josephinum Academy, an all-girls Catholic high school made up by a majority of lower-income, Hispanic students.

Paul, who is weighing a 2016 GOP presidential bid, has called for widening the party's appeal to include more racial and ethnic minorities and younger voters, a clear majority of which President Obama won in 2008 and 2012.

Paul is expected to lead an education roundtable discussion at the school, and later speak to University of Chicago students. He'll also take questions from former Obama adviser David Axelrod at the university.
