Sen. Rand Paul tops five rivals to win Kentucky Republican primary

Republican Sen. Rand Paul made important news on Tuesday by besting five other candidates in his party’s U.S. Senate primary in Kentucky, bringing him that much closer to serving a third term in the federal legislature’s upper chamber, as ABC affiliate WCPO reports.

Paul, who has held his seat in the Senate since 2011, prevailed in a race that also included Arnold Blankenship, Val Fredrick, Paul Hamilton, Tami Steinfeld, and John Schiess and did so in an overwhelming fashion, according to the Louisville Courier Journal.

“Kentucky, I want to thank you for voting for me to be your Republican nominee for U.S. Senate. I’m honored to serve and honored to have your vote,” said Paul after the outcome was declared. “One more election will happen this fall, and I hope I can count on your vote again.”

Offering a hint into his priorities should he secure another term in office, Paul added, “As I do most weeks, I’m here in DC battling the socialists and petty tyrants. Kentucky and all of America deserve better than the massive spending, runaway debt, and crippling inflation that Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer are giving us.”

In addition to those key issue areas, Paul has made no secret of his desire to help spearhead a far-reaching probe into the origins and federal handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, should his party reclaim control of the Senate.

Speaking on the Ron Paul Liberty Report late last year, the Kentucky legislator said that if an expected Republican wave does indeed sweep Congress after the November midterms, he will likely chair a committee and vowed with regard to those who have led the federal coronavirus response, “We will use the subpoena power to bring forth all the records.”

“Right now they send us records – if we ask about their decision, covering up where the virus came from, its origins in the lab – they white it all out, they redact all the information and send us a blank piece of paper and they won’t tell us about their conversations,” Paul explained, but also pledged, “We’ll get to the root of everything.”

Paul also made waves in recent days regarding the $40 billion supplemental aid package for Ukraine that – over his objections – was passed by the Senate on Thursday. “My oath of office is to the U.S. Constitution, not to any foreign nation. Congress is trying yet again to ram through a spending bill – one that I doubt anyone has actually read – and there’s no oversight included into how the money is being spent,” Paul wrote. “We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy.”

Clearly ready to hit the ground running if he wins another term, Paul is now set to face off against Democrat challenger and former Kentucky state legislator Charles Booker, who lost a close 2020 primary race to Amy McGrath, who unsuccessfully ran against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
