Republicans feel this puts them in a good position to retain Jim Bunning's Senate seat for the GOP. So Conway is working to convince conservative Democrats that he's A-rated by the NRA and against Cap and Trade.
Says Conway, "We're spending a lot of time in Western Kentucky and obviously "Crossroads," Karl Rove's group, is in here spending millions upon millions of dollars trying to distort my record, so I'm going to be spending a lot of time in Western Kentucky here in the next few days and we're gonna get that message out and we're gonna win on Tuesday."
Rand Paul says, "We're getting big crowds as we go around the state. People want to get out of this recession, but they want someone who believes in business and will try to get government out of the way of business. Someone who will try to cut the deficit. Someone who will get rid of the wasteful spending."
Thursday's poll shows 30% of Kentucky's Democrats plan to cross over to the Republican side of the ballot to vote for Rand Paul. It also shows 20% more men than women prefer Paul to Conway.
