    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! :lol:

    This is going to be a very interesting race in Kentucky.

    Let's see. An endorsement from a very rich Yankee carries so much weight in Kentucky.

    Perhaps Forbes sees a chance to get behind someone who might actually win this time.

    Don't be an idiot. It doesn't matter where the endorser is from. It's the name that matters.

    Out of state support for state candidates is wrong somehow.
    They should be limited to in state support.
    Kind of an anti lobbyist thing I suppose.

    Are you kidding me?

    Are we REALLY going to have to argue the 1st amendment in this thread?

    speech is fine, but I do not consider any money as speech.

    show me in the constitution where it says money is speech?

    So this endorsement just turned into a donation?

    You seem confused.
