Last night, freedom-loving Americans scored another important victory in our ongoing campaign to take back our country. Conservative Dr. Rand Paul won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Kentucky by more than 20 points.
The Washington establishment threw everything they had at Rand yet he prevailed. The Beltway crowd recruited, endorsed, and funded Rand's opponent, but it didn't work. Rand's message of less spending and less debt overcame all of the attacks and smears against him.
In Rand's victory speech last night he said, "I have a message from the tea party: We've come to take our government back."
This victory is further evidence that an American awakening is taking place across the country as people embrace the principles of freedom that are the backbone of our country.
It shows that Americans want strong leaders who will stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country. And it shows that Americans want their representatives in Washington to focus on true national priorities, not wasteful earmarks.
I want thank each of you who have supported Rand Paul's campaign. If he's elected in November, he will add his voice to the growing number of new Republicans who will fight for our future.
But this race is not over and the Democrats are going to do everything they can to defeat our candidate. Let's redouble our efforts and make sure Rand wins. read more »
