WHAS11 is reporting that Rand Paul is reaching out to Mitch McConnell! This is very interesting news, as Mr McConnell sort of represents the Republican Party Establishment being the Senate Minority Leader. Will the 2 camps be able to come to terms? If nothing else this is further evidence that Trey Grayson is loosing support. If the same person that threw him a bailout ball is willing to negotiate with Rand Paul, at the very least his support for Grayson must be cooling.
"I'm not afraid not to be elected."
From the early afternoon news interview segment.
I love this quote, This is the mark of a principled politician, as opposed to one who tried to be "all things to all people." You might not agree with him on everything. But you know where he stands. This kind of attitude is why "Regan Democrats" existed. If you want soft Democrats and independents to vote for you in the general, having integrity is the best way to attract their vote.
If the Republicans want to win in November, they need to realize that.
It's also great to see the support he's getting from his family.
Would he vote Mitch McConnell for Senate Minority Leader?
Stay tuned. . .
