well deserved victory over establishment golden boy Trey Grayson in yesterday's Kentucky Republican senatorial primary race.
"I have a message from the tea party," said Paul at his victory speech. "We've come to take our government back." He added: "this tea party movement is a message to Washington that we are unhappy and we want things done differently.".
Former PA senator Arlen "RINO" Specter was never a real Republican, but his record finally caught up with him. Realizing he could not be reelected as a Republican, he switched to the Democratic party to try for a sixth term. They rejected him too, electing Joe Sestak to face Pat Toomey in the general election.
President Obama campaigned for Specter and three others, all of whom were defeated. Fiscal conservatives who ran or governed as such did very well.
