Rand Paul Targeted By New Democrat Challenger Who Wants To Replace Him In Senate

(RightIsRight.co) – Bids for the 2022 midterms are beginning to come out as the race to win a majority in the Senate heats up. Current Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has a tough fight ahead as a progressive Democratic candidate just announced his campaign to take back the long-time conservative state.

On Thursday, July 1, former state House Representative Charles Booker released a campaign video announcing his candidacy, shown here:

Last year, Booker ran against Democratic candidate and Marine veteran Amy McGrath, but missed the nomination by less than 3 percentage points. McGrath then failed to beat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) by almost 20 points. However, Booker is hoping with a more progressive message, he can take on Paul who has drawn much criticism from the Left this year.

However, Paul is ready for the fight. The Kentucky Senator has about $3.1 million in his campaign account and won his reelection bid in 2016 with nearly a 15-point margin. Kentucky is known for its conservative values and is likely going to lean right again. But, that doesn’t mean Paul is not vulnerable to a potential loss.

This Senate race will be one to keep a close eye on, and many Conservatives invested in winning back the Senate may choose to support Paul with their time and money.
