Paul says chance of brokered convention growing

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul says
there's a growing chance that his party's presidential nominee
could ultimately be chosen at a brokered convention this summer.
The Kentucky senator has a vested interested in the Republican
presidential race - his father, Ron Paul, is among the candidates.
Rand Paul told reporters Wednesday that a brokered GOP
convention could happen, and the odds might have grown to 30
percent.
A brokered convention hasn't happened in decades, and the
senator said the chances will come into clearer focus after
Republican voters go to the polls in 10 state contests known as
Super Tuesday next month.
Rand Paul downplays the chances of a new candidate coming
forward to win a brokered convention.
He made the comments after speaking in Louisville.
