Rand surges to 19-point lead over GraysonSubmitted by McClarinJ on Sat, 12/26/2009 - 09:33
Following immediately on the heels of a lot of news about one of Rand Paul's campaign staffers resigning over discovery of a racist comment posted on the blog of a band he belonged to (bad news in other words) came the great news of a major surge in voter preference for him over main opponent Trey Grayson in results released by polling firm PPP. The survey showed Rand at 44% and Kentucky Secretary of State Grayson at 25%.
This has got to be devastaing for Trey Grayson, whose funding sources must be drying up now like mad. This will also hurt Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel's status since he twisted arms for donations to his darling Trey. I say look for a leadership challenge after next year's elections, possibly from Jim DeMint.
