CHARLESTON, SC -

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is back in South Carolina, the site of the first-in-the South GOP presidential primary in 2016.

But the Kentucky senator said Monday he won't make a decision on getting into the race for at least a year.

The Kentucky Republican spoke at a party fundraiser in Charleston and then met with reporters. Paul told about 75 people at the fundraiser that the GOP, to win the White House, must become a party that looks like the rest of America, appealing to young people and minorities.

Paul later said he will probably stay out of the South Carolina GOP U.S. Senate primary in which incumbent Lindsey Graham faces two challengers

On Tuesday, Paul speaks to the Corps of Cadets at The Citadel, South Carolina's military college.
