Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul, a conservative activist and son of Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), has just put out a press release officially announcing the endorsement of Sarah Palin. Paul also announced that his campaign has received a “generous contribution” from Palin’s PAC.
“Governor Palin is providing tremendous leadership as the Tea Party movement and constitutional conservatives strive to take our country back,” Paul said in the press release. “Sarah Palin is a giant in American politics. I am proud to receive her support.”
Paul is running in the Republican primary against Secretary of State Trey Grayson, who is widely regarded to be the party establishment’s favored candidate in the race.
