NBC News political director and host of "Meet the Press" Chuck Todd says Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul will be a formidable candidate for president should he decide to seek the Republican nomination next year.

Todd spoke Tuesday on the campus of Murray State University before he delivered the school's 2015 presidential lecture. He said he thinks Paul could overcome a deep divide with his own party over issues like foreign policy and prognosticators should underrate Paul’s chances "at their own peril."

What Should Alison Lundergan Grimes Do Next?

Nov 7, 2014

Half of Kentucky voters are against former U.S. Senate Candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes running for governor in 2015, according to a new poll released this week.

A third of the respondents said Grimes should run, according to the Bluegrass Poll from the Lexington Herald-Leader, The Courier-Journal, WKYT and WHAS-11.

Grimes, a Democrat who currently serves as Kentucky's secretary of state, has not said that she would seek the position.

On Thursday, James Comer, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, mused about a potential matchup.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has a five point lead over Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, according to the latest and final Bluegrass Poll.

Forty-eight percent of likely voters polled say they plan to vote for McConnell, while forty-three percent say they support Grimes. Libertarian David Patterson gets three percent, and six percent of voters are still undecided.

If Kentucky's 2014 elections were up to the students of Calloway County High School, Mitch McConnell would win re-election in the US Senate, Jack Rose would be Murray's next mayor and the county would have a new Parks Tax. 

CCHS held a mock election yesterday for local, state and national seats before the November 4th mid-terms. 

Political science teacher Marshall Ward says the school started administering the exercise every election cycle since 2000 as a way of invigorating young people to vote.
