Political novice Rand Paul rode support from tea party activists to victory in Kentucky's Republican Senate primary Tuesday night, delivering a jolt to the GOP establishment and providing fresh evidence of widespread voter discontent in a turbulent midterm election season.

Paul had 59 percent of the vote — with returns counted from 29 percent of the precincts — to 37 percent for Secretary of State Trey Grayson, who had been recruited to run by the state's dominant Republican, U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In a Democratic primary that commanded far less national attention, Attorney General Jack Conway led Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo, 49 percent to 39 percent.

I am very happy that Mr. Paul has won the primaries. This is fantastic, go Paul go! He won overwhelmingly against the establishment Republican.

This is very exciting! The Democrats are extremely unpopular in Kentucky at the moment and therefore Rand Paul should be able to win the senate seat! I very much hope that Paul will turn out to be as principled and as pro-liberty as his father.
