Rand Paul Wins

UPDATE

Larry Sabato tweets:

With massive margin, Paul gets big bump from primary. He’s Nov. frontrunner. But he needs message discipline; multiple gaffes can be deadly.

Rich,

Regarding Larry’s comment that “multiple gaffes can be deadly” – bear in mind, we elected and re-elected Jim Bunning, one of the most gaffe-prone and genuinely mean-spirited politicians of my lifetime. Paul’s gaffes would have to be pretty frequent and pretty bad to overshadow Jim’s (and I voted for Bunning more than once).

McConnell statement:

“Dr. Paul ran an outstanding campaign which clearly struck a chord with Kentucky voters and I congratulate him on his impressive victory.  Now Kentucky Republicans will unite in standing against the overreaching policies of the Obama Administration.  We are spiraling further into unsustainable debt and Kentucky needs Rand Paul in the U.S. Senate because he will work every day to stop this crippling agenda.”
