Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) announced on Tuesday that he will run for president in 2016, but his campaign website still needed some work.

As of Tuesday morning, the “Education” section of his campaign website misspelled the issue as “eductation” in a description of the senator’s education policy.

The error was fixed shortly after the misspelling was noted on Twitter.

Paul’s team made another error on Tuesday when the senator announced his 2016 bid. His official Twitter account retweeted a fake image of Aurora theater shooter James Holmes holding an “I Stand With Rand” sign. The tweet was deleted after about 20 minutes.
