As gloomy as things appear to be for the Republican Party, the 2016 presidential primary holds a lot of promise.

Following on the heels of this week’s announcement that U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio will deliver the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday — in English and Spanish — the Tea Party Express has selected Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., to continue what will be the national group’s third year of offering a tea party reply.

Both Rubio and Paul are rumored to be considering a 2016 run for the Republican presidential nomination, as is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

“We are giving a voice to the tea party movement when the mainstream media and the Republican establishment wants to write us off as dead,” said Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express.

Paul will make his remarks before an audience at the National Press Club, just after Rubio wraps up the Republican response Tuesday night, according to CNN.

Of course, the senator from Kentucky is hoping to avoid a similar fate that befell U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and Herman Cain, who delivered the tea party responses in 2011 and 2012, respectively: Both were unsuccessful in their bids for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination.
