Rand Paul Seeks to Buy an Election in Kentucky

$250,000

Amount Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has transferred to the Republican Party of Kentucky “as a down payment on the presidential caucuses he has asked the party to conduct in March,” the Lexington Herald Leader reports. “Paul is seeking the party’s help in bypassing a state law that prohibits him from running for president and for re-election to his Senate seat on the same ballot next year. He wrote to the party’s state central committee, which has nearly 350 members, in an effort to quell concern about the cost of a caucus.”
