Tea Party Tidal Wave -Rand Paul wins
Tuesday, November 2, 2010 8:10 pm
Rand Paul called his victory a "Tea Party Tidal Wave" as he was declared the victor over AG Jack Conway. Paul beat Conway by 10% of the vote.
In a campaign characterized as the worst in the nation, Paul emerged as the conservatively minded, deficit reducing, "taking our government back" candidate. He rode a tide of voter anger over lost jobs, the health care bill, and a Democratic White House that leaned too far left for Kentucky.
