Bowling Green eye surgeon Rand Paul says he’ll decide before August 20 if he’ll enter the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in 2010, regardless of whether incumbent Republican Jim Bunning remains a candidate for re-election. rand-paul

“I have publicly said that I do not wish to run against Jim Bunning,” Paul (pictured at right) said. “However, the uncertainty about his campaign is forcing me to reconsider. I don’t want to allow games to be played where the senator drops out at the last minute and there is no primary and no debate about the direction of the Republican Party.”

Both Paul and Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson (below right) ┬áhave formed exploratory committees for a possible Senate run. Grayson says he won’t enter the race unless Bunning drops out. trey-grayson

Run Rand Run! Our Country needs you and your father to save it! You are the right person to represent US in the Senate not a former Bill Clinton delegate RINO! We the People should decide who represents US and our values; not the party non-leadership!
