Rand Paul

With the Kentucky Senate primaries just 6 months away, Republican Rand Paul has begun to pull ahead of Secretary of State Trey Grayon in the GOP U.S. Senate primary.

For the online gambling industry, this race is considered significant on two fronts.  One, Governor Steve Beshear has been at the forefront of a case whereby he attempted to seize 141 online gambling domain names last October.  The industry has been waging war with Beshear in a Kentucky Supreme Court.

More importantly perhaps is Rand's dad, Texas Congressman Ron Paul, has publicly supported legalized online gambling.  Much of Rand's support comes from the very people who helped raise money for his dad. 

The Bowling Green eye doctor has no prior political experience but a recent WHAS11/Survey USA shows Paul forging ahead of Grayson with a 35 percent lead versus Grayson's 32 percent.  This one is still too close to call as there is a 4.1 percent margin of error. 

Grayson is down five from the last poll 11 weeks ago, Paul has gained nine points since then.
