Not more than a week removed from learning that Rand Paul creamed Kentucky GOP rival Trey Grayson in Q3 fund raising, the Kentucky GOP establishment has begun fighting back online.
The counter-offensive is not a direct attack from Tray Grayson, but rather a proxy attack from Bill Johnson, a competing candidate for Senator in Kentucky, and Lisa Graas, a Bill Johnson support and Catholic convert and conservative blogger. The Bill Johnson campaign appears to an attack arm for Trey Grayson as it has only come out with negative attacks only against Rand Paul and not Trey Grayson.
Lisa Graas' main beef is the abortion issue - which is very important. She is trying to paint Rand Paul (and Ron Paul) as being pro-abortion because they argue that abortion should not be under the purview of the federal government, but rather the states. Lisa Graas' primary point of contention is the 14th Amendment, however she seems to conveniently skip over the 10th Amendment in her rants. This brings us to the definition of a person and a conversation much too long for this thread. Suffice to say that Rand and Ron Paul are clearly pro-life and have admitted such countless times in public.
We need to sound off on this issue and let the people know where our candidates stand. We can't let others define what our candidates do and don't stand for.
