FEAR NOT, people of Kentucky. Alison Lundergan Grimes is already on the case, and she will sue Rand Paul’s cargo shorts off if he even so much as thinks about running for two offices at the same time.
Uh oh. Things are getting serious, folks. Or maybe not. This legal threat from Grimes could actually help Rand.
Damon Thayer, the Republican majority floor leader in the state Senate, said Thursday that Grimes had “unnecessarily politicized” the issue and done so in a way that might rally Republicans around Paul.
“I think she’s escalated the interest Republicans may have in the issue because she’s clearly universally disliked in our party,” Thayer said.
Thayer, who earlier this year sponsored unsuccessful legislation that would have allowed Paul to run for both offices in 2016, said that Grimes’ comments “helped the cause.” (Lexington Herald-Leader)
Thayer also told WHAS11 that running for simultaneous races isn’t that controversial of an idea. It’s even a Democratic idea(!) with precedents set by Lyndon Johnson and Vice President Joe Biden.
“And the fact that the Senate has already passed a bill, just having one chamber take action on it probably helps Paul’s legal case, should there be one,” Thayer said. (WHAS11)
