Paul Alleges Political Shenanigans in Senate Race

Bowling Green, KY – Kentucky Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul is accusing political adversaries of using a push poll to distort his positions on key issues in his race for U.S. Senate. Paul says his campaign office was alerted to calls placed to voters across the state last Thursday from pollsters who incorrectly described him as pro-abortion. Paul, the son of former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas, is running for the Senate seat being vacated by incumbent Jim Bunning. Paul says he doesn't know with certainty who instigated or paid for the alleged push poll, an unscrupulous campaign tactic that aims to influence voter opinion under the guise of a poll.
