|U.S. Senator from Kentucky|

|Successor||Incumbent (no successor)|
|Spouse(s)||Kelley Ashby Paul|
Dr. Rand Paul (born January 7, 1963) is the conservative junior United States Senator from Kentucky. Rand is pro-life, a paleolibertarian and is emerging as a movement conservative. Unlike many politicians of both major political parties, Rand Paul supports sharply reducing the size of government.
In 2010, he won the Republican primary after defeating moderate candidate Trey Grayson by a landslide. Despite intense opposition by liberals and the lamestream media, Rand Paul then won by an overwhelming margin first against a RINO Republican favored by the Establishment, and then against Democrat Jack Conway in the 2010 Midterm Election. This was the seat formerly held by Jim Bunning, one of the greatest conservative sports stars, who endorsed Paul in Republican primaries.
