Palin Endorses Rand Paul in Ky. Senate Race

Monday, 01 Feb 2010 08:04 PM


FRANKFORT, Ky. - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has endorsed Bowling Green eye surgeon Rand Paul in the U.S. Senate race in Kentucky.

Palin said in a written statement that she's "proud to support grassroots candidates like Dr. Paul." She said is lending her support because Paul, the son of former presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas, wants to "shake up the status quo in Washington."

Paul is running for the seat now held by retiring Sen. Jim Bunning, who opted not to seek a third term. He faces Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson in the May primary election.

The Paul campaign released the endorsement on Monday, calling Palin "a giant in American politics."
