Poll: Ron Paul’s Son Could Win U.S. Senate Seat in Kentucky

Rand Paul, the son of Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), is touting the first public poll on the GOP primary for next year’s U.S. Senate race. According to the survey, conducted for WHAS11, Paul trails GOP frontrunner Trey Grayson by only 11 points, 37-26. Among “conservative” Republican voters, he only trails by 7 points. And Paul only trails the two potential Democratic nominees by single digits. (Grayson leads both candidates, Attorney General Jack Conway and Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo.)

“Great news for Rand Paul ahead of his scheduled ‘moneybomb’ internet fundraiser on August 20,” writes Joe Arnold in an analysis of the network’s poll. “It paints him as a legitimate candidate and not a fringe candidate.”

I profiled the younger Paul’s campaign last week.

Well at least it'd be slightly easier to cut wasteful defense spending if he won.

“We're pleased with these early results indicating significant momentum for Rand Paul at the beginning of a long campaign.”

“Kentucky Republicans are realizing that being just a little better than Washington D.C. Democrats isn't going to cut it any more in a country that can't afford to play political games. Rand Paul is a Constitutional Republican. As this campaign focuses on moving the party and the nation toward building a more prosperous and free America, you will see more people eagerly turn to Rand Paul to represent them.”
