SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Presidential candidate Rand Paul will open a campaign office in a San Francisco shared incubator work space, making him the first 2016 presidential candidate to stake a claim to the Silicon Valley tech vote.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1zSkxMa) Paul plans to announce the office on Saturday during a visit to San Francisco.

The Republic presidential candidate will also detail his team’s collaboration with StartupHouse and unveil his campaign’s technology team and its chief technical officer.

Later in the day, the Republican senator from Kentucky will speak at the “Disrupting Democracy” conference in San Francisco.

Paul will visit California after a stop in Arizona, where on Friday he said his first priority if elected president would be to ensure that the federal government stops gathering information at the expense of privacy.
