Kentucky Students Pick Rand Paul

Kentucky elementary, middle and high school students have picked Republican Rand Paul for U.S. Senate, according to the results of mock elections conducted in schools across the state during the past two months.

Paul defeated Democrat Jack Conway by 4.4 points, 52.2 to 47.8 percent. More than 37,000 students cast ballots in more than 100 schools.

This was the seventh year for the mock elections; the students have a track record of picking the eventual winner 83 percent of the time.

Meanwhile, former president Bill Clinton will be in Louisville on Monday to stump for Conway, who is trailing in polls by 5 points plus.
