Rand Paul Seeks to Buy an Election in Kentucky


Amount Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has transferred to the Republican Party of Kentucky “as a down payment on the presidential caucuses he has asked the party to conduct in March,” the Lexington Herald Leader reports. “Paul is seeking the party’s help in bypassing a state law that prohibits him from running for president and for re-election to his Senate seat on the same ballot next year.
