Rand Paul is predicting a big victory in Tuesday's Republican U.S. Senate primary in Kentucky, though his chief opponent hammered the tea party favorite as being overconfident.

Paul told The Associated Press that he "would be surprised" if he doesn't win the race with polls showing him up by double digits over Secretary of State Trey Grayson. Paul held a rally at an outdoor park in his hometown of Bowling Green a day before the election.

Grayson told a crowd in Louisville earlier Monday that Paul is an overconfident "grandstander" who could lose sight of Kentucky in favor of the tea party movement.

The two are seeking the seat of retiring Sen. Jim Bunning, a 78-year-old sports icon who opted not to seek a third term.
