It's Official Rand Paul to Run for Senate

Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul, will be a candidate for the for the Kentucky U.S. senate seat left vacant by the retiring Jim Bunning.

Writes Lew Rockwell via Chris Hightower:

Dr. Paul has been respectful of incumbent Senator Bunning’s courage in opposing the bank bailout. Dr. Paul waited for Senator Bunning’s difficult decision not to run for re-election before entering the race.

The deficit this year will be 13% of the GNP. This is an historic high. The danger is going to be inflation within a year or two, and prices may rise rapidly.”
