He still polls worse than SoS Trey Grayson in both the primary and the general, but if I were Grayson, I'd watch out. Note that Grayson was in DC raising money from GOP Senators.

I think that he was actually. Although it is only his nickname.

lol I think everyone has this moment of realization at some point, Randall chose the nickname during his Father's Libertarian presidential campaign in the 80s or whenever that was, in celebration of Ayn Rand.

He legally changed his name to Rand, but I'm not sure when.

I wonder how much Greyson raised yesterday.

At this point, that's all name recognition.

Still, money don't necessarily equal success in campaigns and I haven't seen him on TV to make a judgment there yet either.

I probably know the most about Kentucky politics on this board, being a daily reader of KY politics,

and Paul does NOT have his campaign together whatsoever, his campaign keeps making childish errors indicative of a poorly run grassroots campaign

He sounds okay on TV, but he spends most of his time on national programs like Morning Joe and FOX News, and he's against the entire Republican establishment that wants a reliable conservative vote from Kentucky

Money doesn't translate into votes, obviously.

Ron Paul demonstrated that already, and the Kentucky GOP primary is hardly the libertarian heartland of America

If Rand is willing to accuse Trey of being a government-loving Clinton-voting liberal in sharp negative ads, Rand will have a better chance

That, and if he doesn't do the same "THE FED IS EVIL ONEONEONEONEELEVEN!!!!" that his father does.

that won't be his problem, Senate candidates have a very limited window of opportunity from which to send a very limited message

He has said that his name is Randall and that Rand has always just been his childhood nickname. It has nothing to do with Ayn Rand.

Yes, but can you imagine is Paul is nominated and actually wins. That's be the comedy highlight of election night for me.

The latest poll for the primary has it at 35-32 with Rand leading.

There's no reason to think the Democrats would be favored if Rand Paul won the GOP nomination.

He'd certainly give them the best shot.

There's a good chance that a Republican who isn't a raving loony will attract some typically Democratic voters.
