Rep. Hal Rogers endorses Rand's opponent.

Kentucky: Rogers Endorses Grayson

By John McArdle | May 3, 2010 6:00 AM |

Rep. Hal Rogers (R) waded into Kentucky's GOP Senate primary Monday with his endorsement of Secretary of State Trey Grayson.

"Kentuckians need a Senator who will work with me and the rest of our federal delegation to fight for our values and priorities," Rogers said in a statement. "Trey Grayson is the candidate who will do just that. We need him in the U.S. Senate to stop the liberal Democrats from bankrupting our country."

Grayson is facing eye surgeon Rand Paul in the May 18 primary and most public polling has shown the son of Texas Rep. Ron Paul (R) leading by wide margins. Paul's outsider campaign is being championed by Tea Party activists in the Bluegrass State and Paul has embraced that support.



At this point, with McConnell considering, Dobson having REconsidered, DeMint waiting to see if McConnell makes a move, maybe the question to ask is who WON'T weigh in with an endorsement. Maybe Grayson's friends Clinton and Obama will help out ;-)

Rogers endorsement matters in the Republican 5th district and helps Grayson.
On the other hand Dr. James Dobson of Focus On the Family has dropped his endorsement of Grayson and now supports Rand. What happened? No doubt this helps Rand with evangelicals.
In 2008 Ron Paul had little support among evangelicals. Ron, being a Baptist, should have done better. Maybe Rand can do better with an important group among republican voters.

Rogers is the king of earmarks

in the Kentucky delegation so it's not surprising. Grayson has no doubt been lobbying hot and heavy for this one.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.
