Paul Rides Tea Party Wave To Primary Win

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- – His campaign manager says Rand Paul has a full day of national media interviews ahead of him after winning last night's Republican primary for U.S. Senate

The 47-year-old Bowling Green eye surgeon secured 60 percent of the vote over Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson. Campaigning on limited government, a balanced budget, and term limits, Paul rode a Tea Party tidal wave to victory.

Grayson, who was endorsed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, urged his supporters to rally behind Paul.

Paul faces Attorney General Jack Conway in the November election.
