Rep. Ron Paul To Raise Funds For Son In Louisville

From Lisa Autry, Kentucky Public Radio/WKYU, Bowling GreenU.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul will get some help from his father this weekend. Texas Congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul will headline a fundraiser Saturday in Louisville.Rand Paul, a Bowling Green eye doctor, says this will likely be his father's only trip to Kentucky during the campaign."He's got his own primary and his own things to worrry about. Plus I want to make this election...it has to be about me presenting the message and can I present the message to Kentucky's Republicans and eventually Kentucky's independents....do they want me to present the message and go to Washington. So it is about me," he said.This week Rand Paul accused GOP leaders in Washington of meddling in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race by trying to hand-pick the party nominee. Paul was referring to fellow Republican Trey Grayson, who has enjoyed fundraising help from the National Republican Senatorial Committee.Grayson's campaign manager, Nate Hodson, countered by calling Paul the hand-picked candidate of "out-of-state Libertarian crusaders." Grayson and Rand Paul are among six Republicans and five Democrats seeking the seat that will be left vacant by the retirement of Republican Jim Bunning.
