Rand Paul was a featured guest at a fundraising event for GOP candidate Jimmy Higdon in Bardstown last night. This photo of him being introduced by Senate Floor leader Robert Stivers, flanked by Senator Dan Seum and Congressman Brett Guthrie says alot.
First, his status as a featured guest shows that he has been taken seriously by the mainstream GOP. Second, it shows that he and at least one other federal candidate, Brett Guthrie, know the importance of keeping a balance of power in Frankfort as the legislature takes up the important duty of re-drawing Congressional Districts and state senate and representative districts following the 2010 census.
And third it raises this question: Where was Trey Grayson in time of GOP need?
While Grayson may be executing well from the McConnell playbook and keeping his powder dry until the very last minute, nevertheless Rand Paul is clearly out and about developing loyalties and friendships, an investment which could pay big dividends come May.Subscribe To "The Marcus Carey Perspective":
