Rand Paul: A Movement Conservative

Could another movement conservative in Rand Paul take out another establishment-backed Republican in Trey Grayson? It's looking like an ever-stronger possibility. National Blog Senate Guru jumps into the fray. . .
Kentucky: How worried about insurgent conservative Rand Paul is establishment-backed Trey Grayson in the 2010 Republican Senate primary? Extremely worried. Grayson has trotted out this weak attack:
He's an outsider, he's not a Kentuckian. You know I'm a 5th generation Kentuckian, educated here in the public schools, raising my family here.

Paul's response to Grayson utterly demolishes him:

Strange and desperate attacks are easily hit out of the park by Rand, quickly responding with what amounts to a walk off home run in one short sentence "I've been a Kentuckian longer than Grayson's been a Republican!"

For those who don't remember, Mr. Grayson was actively campaigning for Bill Clinton way back in the 90's when Trey was a Democrat.

We see movement conservative Marco Rubio preparing to take down the establishment-backed Charlie Crist in Florida.

Could the same thing happen in Kentucky? We can only hope.
