Sen. Rand Paul continues to pan the thought of another Mitt Romney run for president, more recently calling the idea “the definition of insanity.”

“When you do the same thing and expect a different result, it’s sort of what Einstein said, that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result,” he said in an interview with the New Hampshire Journal’s John DiStaso.

Paul traveled extensively in New Hampshire yesterday, making campaign-style stops to promote his own style of presidential politics.

But the Kentucky senator spent a lot of time talking to reporters and shooting down the idea of a Romney candidacy.

“A couple of months ago he said that he’d had his chance and it was time for somebody new. He was probably right when he said that,” he told the Journal.

Paul is the most vocal presidential candidate openly criticizing Romney after the former Massachusetts governor and failed presidential candidate signaled interest in a 2016 run.

“I think he’s had his chance and I think it’s time for some fresh blood,” Paul said to the Daily Signal earlier this week.
