Steve Forbes Endorses Rand Paul for Senate - Forbes.com All I can say is WOW. This is probably the most significant endorsement that any non-establishment conservative candidate has gotten in a major race in recent memory. This is the kind of thing that could help put Paul over the top to beat his opponent in the primary. He's already polling ahead of his opponent and the Democrats, so there's a HUGE possibility he could actually win this thing. I'm beside myself right now, mainly because Forbes had a VERY similar, and just just as good a candidate, to endorse in NJ's gubernatorial primary back in the spring but instead chose to endorse the establishment candidate Chris Christie and attack the one I'm speaking of. While this is definitely very weird to me, I'll TAKE IT! This is going to be a very interesting race in Kentucky.
