Could Ron Paul’s son have a genuine shot at the U.S. Senate in 2010?
A Survey USA poll of the Republican primary for Senate in Kentucky , where incumbent GOP Sen. Jim Bunning is retiring, finds that the party establishment’s favored candidate, Sec. of State Trey Grayson, is at only 37% among the party faithful. Rand Paul, an ophthalmologist and son of everyone’s favorite libertarian, is at a surprisingly competitive 26%, with a high undecided number.
Grayson is in his second term, and is a popular statewide officeholder who was able to survive a Democratic wave in the 2007 state elections. But so far, this primary is wide open. And you have to think that Rand Paul has a built-in fundraising base from all his dad’s activists across the country.
So get out there and Google… Rand Paul!
