    I think it more likely that some Grayson supporters wanted to cause problems for Rand's campaign than the Democrats having anything to do with it at this point. But exit polling is perfectly legal and legitimate, Grayson is just going out kicking and screaming.

    I wonder if Holder will have their charges dropped if indicate they are willing to plead out.

    I've been watching the Kentucky race very closely, because I'm excited that it looked like Rand Paul would upset the party's establishment big time.

    I'm a little bit concerned from what I've been hearing though. Not only with the Rand Paul supporters allegedly harassing voters but with the low turnout.

    We were told that the tea party folks were ready to come out in droves to prove that they were willing to put their money where there mouth is and VOTE for their principles. I've been watching the movement from the sideline, and today is the day they have the opportunity to show that they actually have values that they are willing to go out and vote for.

    Rand Paul is the respect threshold. Are they willing to vote for what they claim to stand for? Arkansas seeing voters pour into those polls... we'll see what that means about the liberal base too. This is very interesting.

    The upswell of support for Paul was quite significant in the final weeks of the campaign.

    If he indeed pulls this off, yet another indicator of the conservative momentum sweeping the nation heading into November 2010.

    And make no mistake - this sentiment is not simply "anti-incumbent", but rather anti-liberal/anti-Democrat/anti-Obama.

    The sleeping giant of that is the Silent Majority is indeed awakening, and the power it has upon the ballot box results will prove considerable...

    Well CNN has projected that Rand is the winner.
