"Rand made this decision before I was in the race. That's his opinion. Rand is one vote. Rand will vote one time," Bevin told reporters at a gathering in Washington at the headquarters of Freedomworks, a tea party group backing his candidacy.

Rand jumped into this too soon. He should have done as Cruz did in TX and announce he was staying agnostic.

We don't have to, though, so

Support Matt Bevin to oust Mitch McConnell in KY

it should be noted: that RP couldn't endorse Matt Bevin,
b/c he wasn't in the race @ that time.

LOL If this was Palin, all the PDSers would be here calling her a traitor.

Ran Paul, though, can do no wrong.

Praying or pretending to pray about secular matters doesn't do any good.

God doesn't care about what happens in Kentucky or anywhere else on earth.

The concept is called "free will".

If people are going to be stupid or smart about something or other, God is not interested and will not intervene, so there is no point in praying about it.

Both Paul and Cruz appeared on the same TV show and both said they were staying out of primaries involving incumbents.

So Paul’s word has a short truth half life.

Paul isn’t a Tea Party Conservative, examine his pronouncements on Amnesty and other issues.

I would put him in the Rubio box, meaning he does his poll testing instead of having core convictions.

Nope. God has never had anything to do with that.

Then, they are sadly misinformed.

And rightly so. I won't forgive her endorsement of Fiorina.

Ran Paul, though, can do no wrong.

You bet he can and did. He can fix it too. I'm hoping he does so very soon.

I don’t believe I can vote for him. If he were any other tea party candidate I would jump at the chance. He lied about going to MIT, took Stimulus money to save his business, an seems borderline psychotic.

Rand is one of the better guys, but he is forever disgraced by his endorsement of Mitch over Matt. Go Ted Cruz!!!!! Bob

The latest reveal about Bevin is that he signed on to an endorsement of TARP in a letter to the shareholders of an investment fund he ran.
