Paul Becomes Contender in Kentucky

Dr. Rand Paul (R) -- son of Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) -- "has become a serious challenger in the race to succeed Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY)," the New York Times reports.

"Capitalizing on a hearty distrust of government and an anti-Republican-establishment fervor among conservatives, he has used the Internet to raise more than $1.3 million since he began his campaign in August."

Said Paul: "This primary is really about the future of our party. The Republican platform specifically says we don't believe in bailing out private business, and yet we did. The Republican platform also specifically says we don't believe in government ownership of private businesses, and yet a lot of Republicans voted for that."
