There are a number of Republicans fighting for Senate seats this year. A few are challengers. The majority of them are incumbents. Some of them are good candidates. One of them is a great candidate.
He is Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
Rand Paul won a race he was not supposed to win in 2010 and became Kentucky’s junior senator. Since then he has stood up and been counted when we needed Senators to support conservative and libertarian ideas in the Senate.
This year Rand Paul ran for President and ended his campaign it was not as successful as many hoped it would be. Rand Paul has many followers who are very passionate about him and his causes.
They should be.
He is someone worth being passionate about.
Rand Paul has been a steadfast supporter of the Constitution during his time in the United States Senate. He hasn’t always been perfect but he is in the top five Senators in support of the Constitution.
Every year, the Democrats get worse. Harry Reid, the longtime, very corrupt, Senate Democrat leader is retiring and he will be replaced by New York Senator Chuck Schumer. Schumer is as much a socialist as Hillary Clinton is. But the difference between Schumer and Clinton, or for that matter Barack Obama, is that Schumer is a very good strategist and tactician. He is the kind of field general the Democrats need to advance their agenda. Say whatever else you will about Obama, he has not capitalized on a lot of opportunities he has had. Things could be a lot worse.
As majority leader, Schumer would make things a lot worse.
The Senate hangs in the balance. The Republicans may not be doing what we want them to but they far better than the Party of Treason. For the Republicans, all things being even, it will be tough to hold on to the Senate. They are defending more seats than the Democrats are this year and they have some really tough fights.
Kentucky is a purple state. Though both U.S. Senators are Republicans, Democrats do win state wide races in Kentucky. Rand Paul is not guaranteed reelection. It could come down to his seat in the Senate in determining whether the Republicans or the Party of Treason controls the Senate.
Rand Paul deserves reelection to the Senate because he is a very good Senator.
Tea Party Nation endorses Rand Paul for reelection to the United States Senate.
