Bill Allowing Paul to Run for Two Offices Advances

The Kentucky Senate passed a bill that would make clear Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) may run for two federal offices at once, the Lexington Herald Leader reports.

However, House Speaker Greg Stumbo (D) "continued to scoff at the idea" saying "he didn't think the bill would pass the Democrat-led House."

"Paul and his allies believe the state law doesn't apply to federal elections, pointing to a Supreme Court ruling that said an Arkansas law instituting congressional term limits ran afoul of the U.S. Constitution."
