Fox News - Rand Paul Victory Speech

In his victory speech, Tea Party backed candidate Rand Paul said, “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.” Paul ran on a platform of opposing all federal bailouts, strong national defense, lowering taxes, and a return of the Federal Government to only the enumerated powers provided for it by the US Constitution. This platform resonated with the Tea Party and thus gained its support. It obviously resonated among the rest of Kentucky voters as well, due to the fact that Paul trounced his GOP backed opponent, Trey Grayson, by a margin of 59 percent of the vote to Grayson’s 35 percent of the vote. While this was only the primary, it still provides some evidence of the clout of the Tea Party Movement.

It may, however, be a long hard road to November for Senate candidate Rand Paul, because a recent poll dated June 1st from the Rasmussen Reports shows Paul with a plus 8 point advantage in his bid for the Senate, leading his Democratic opponent Jack Conway 49% to Conway’s 41% of voters polled by phone. The problem for Paul is that this is down from a 25 point advantage just two weeks earlier. Paul’s drop in the polls may have been largely due to his recent comments that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 may have been an “overreach” by the government. This, of course, set off a firestorm of negative reporting concerning Paul including hints of racism. Paul has since come out clarifying his comments, but it remains to be seen how well this sits with Kentucky voters.
