Rand Paul on WHAS11 TV

(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?

Most Kentucky political observers expected the democrats to duke it out in the senate primary while Republican Trey Grayson sat back and prepared for the fall campaign.

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

Rand Paul leading in the

Rand Paul leading in the polls bump!

Why is Rand Paul reaching out to McConnell?

Maybe McConnell is the one reaching out to Rand Paul and the TV news has it backwards. If Rand Paul wins, McConnell will want to claim the credit.
I can not imagine Rand Paul making any deals with anybody and that will really piss off the establishment. And Rand Paul has come quite a long ways with NO HELP from McConnell at this point, why seek it now. In fact, let the party leadership continue to show how disconnected they are from the grassroots true conservatives.

I think its a good move.

I think its a good move.

Now that Rand is leading in the polls and fund raising he can point McConnell and the establishment to the writing on the wall and give them a choice. Either get behind us, get out of the way or get steam rolled.

Run, Rand, Run!!!!

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

Why..

McConnell is the R kingmaker in the state. Just like Mayor Jerry Abramson owns the D's in the city. The Mayor got the city-county merger passed so he could run again after getting term limited. All politics flows through these two hacks in the main city, and in the state. So you better please them or you won't get anywhere with the party.

I think Mitch "the bitch" knows he can't get Grayson elected. Now he's seeing if he can get Rand to play ball.... I doubt Rand wants to be linked to the McConnell-Bush wing of the party... So this should get interesting.

The best one can hope for is that they realize they can't elect Grayson, but don't have the ability to stop Rand. But hell we all remember Nevada so there is no telling what they will pull when they are running scared.

But from what I hear from family in the state is Rand is very popular breaking with the establishment... Hopefully that is enough so that he can't be stopped.

bump

bump for a hard working patriot*))
