Rand Paul Victory Speech:
“I have a message, a message, from the Tea Party. A message that is loud and clear and does not mince words. We’ve come to take our government back.”
Insurgent Senate candidate Rand Paul claimed the Republican nomination for the seat of retiring Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning Tuesday evening, easily besting establishment favorite Trey Grayson, the sitting secretary of State who won the endorsement of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
With approximately 39 percent of precincts reporting, Paul was drawing 59 percent of the vote to Grayson’s 36 percent – a yawning lead over a candidate once viewed as a sure bet for his party’s nomination.
