Ron Paul Wins Kentucky

By on 5.23.12 | 3:56PM

Ron Paul finished a distant second in the Kentucky primary, despite his son being the state's junior senator. But a Paul supporter -- a backer of both Ron and Rand (who reciprocated) easily won the Republican nomination in the fourth congressional district.

Thomas Massie defeated his nearest opponent in a four-way race 44.8 percent to 28.6 percent. The district has been represented by a Republican for all but six years since 1967 -- when quite conservative Democrat Ken Lucas held the seat -- making Massie a heavy favorite to win the general election in November. Politico referred to it as "another Randslide." This is part of the movement-building I've been writing about for a while that will have impact beyond Tampa.
