U.S. Senator Jim Bunning issued the following statement congratulating Dr. Rand Paul on winning the Kentucky Republican Primary for the United States Senate:
"I want to congratulate Dr. Paul on a hard-fought victory in the Republican primary for the United States Senate. Dr. Paul is the right man to win in November and his victory today is a clear signal to the Washington establishment that it's time to shake things up. Dr. Paul is a strong conservative who will be his own man in Washington and work to end the bailouts, stop wasteful spending, and defend our Kentucky values. He will fight to take our government back."
