CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Republican National Committee chairman are distancing themselves from conservatives who suggested in recent days that President Barack Obama could face impeachment for the developing scandal at the Internal Revenue Service.

RNC chairman Reince Priebus said, "There's a few chapters before we get to the last one." He says it's up to Republicans to "connect the dots" before calling for impeachment.

Asked about impeachment, Paul says investigators must learn more "before we go anywhere else."

The Republican leaders addressed reporters before a Monday GOP fundraiser in Concord, N.H.

Paul is touring early-voting states while considering whether to run for president in 2016.

The Internal Revenue Service has admitted inappropriate scrutiny of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status ahead of the last election.
