LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Republican Party says U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is speaking at a party fundraiser in Hot Springs in December.

The GOP on Monday announced that the freshman Kentucky senator and potential 2016 presidential hopeful will speak at the Hot Springs Convention Center on Dec. 6. General admission tickets will be sold for $50 and will go on sale Oct. 22 through Ticketmaster.

Paul is the son of former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, a former presidential candidate, and was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010.
