McConnell Goes to Campaign for Grayson

Politico is reporting that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is doing some last-minute campaigning on behalf of Trey Grayson, locked in a GOP primary battle with Rand Paul, the son of Ron. Paul is an isolationist, while Grayson is not. Grayson had an early lead in the primaries, but is now down significantly.

The top-ranking Senate Republican has previously clashed with Paul, who has dodged questions about whether he'd commit to supporting McConnell for Republican leader in the next Congress. McConnell's endorsement also brings him into even more overt conflict with retiring Sen. Jim Bunning, who endorsed Paul to succeed him in mid-April and publicly blamed GOP leaders for leaning on him to drop his reelection bid.

Paul is not an isolationist. He says he would have voted to go to war in Afghanistan, but didn't think Iraq imperiled our national security, and thinks going in created a power vacuum which embolden's Iran.
