The biggest loser from Rand Paul’s win in the Kentucky Republican Senate primary is Mitch McConnell.
When the party’s base ignores an endorsement from a sitting senator and minority leader then candidates anywhere who become labeled as the establishment figure are in trouble. Both parties will be affected by anti-incumbent fever in November, and the Democrats are likely to sustain heavy losses.
But there will be places, and Kentucky is one, where a Right-winger running for the Republicans could hand victory to the Democrats.
Rand Paul has some interesting ideas, and is much more of a real libertarian than many others jumping on the tea party bandwagon.
