Rand Paul on WHAS11 TVSubmitted by northstar on Tue, 11/10/2009 - 20:19
(WHAS11) - The surprise candidate in Kentucky's Republican U.S. Senate primary tells WHAS11 News he is reaching out to senior Senator, Mitch McConnell.
Rand Paul is a Bowling Green eye surgeon. His campaign's poll numbers and fundraising success have stunned party leaders and it is early in the game.
So who is he and does he have a chance?

But Rand Paul and the sudden uprising of fiscal conservatism in the tea party movement appears to have changed all that.
