If there was any doubt who the Republican establishment in Washington favors in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race next year, it's waning.

Two dozen members of the Senate Republican caucus — including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee — will hold a $500-per-person fundraiser for Secretary of State Trey Grayson on Sept. 23 at the committee's headquarters in Washington.

Grayson's campaign manager, Nate Hodson, couldn't be reached for comment Tuesday.

David Adams, a spokesman for Rand Paul, a Bowling Green ophthalmologist who is Grayson's chief opponent in next year's Republican primary, said the fundraiser doesn't surprise him because it was clear the party's leadership was lining up behind Grayson.

“Rand Paul is not going to make any policy decision nor will he make any vote based on what makes him popular with the leadership of any party,” Adams said.

Grayson and Paul are two of the five Republicans seeking the GOP nomination to replace Sen. Jim Bunning, who announced last month that he would retire after two terms because of his difficulty in raising money. He has accused McConnell and Cornyn of trying to force him from the race.

People, if anyone thinks this is going to be unique to just this case they are mistaken. The people are fed up and trying to elect Constitutional representatives and the establishment is blocking at every turn. Case in point in Kentucky where the "Republicans" are throwing a fundraiser for a former Democrat. Keep in mind many like Mitch McConnell who support Grayson voted FOR the bailout. The fight to take our country back is not going to be easy. Its hard to fight two parties who make all the rules and control the media.
