He's running for the replublican nomination to run for the U.S. Senate from KENTUCKY. He's campaigning all over the nation & on every TV show that will have him instead of campaigning here where people can actually vote for him.

You don't get CNN in Kentucky? Running for office is a popularity contest that requires raising a buttload of cash. And runnign against the establishment requires even more.

I'm pretty sure he's been making appearances in the state. This video was a local show. If you'd like to go see him, here's his schedule.

Actually, I don't have to go see him, he lives about 8 miles from my home.

I'm a retired healthcare administrator with one of the hospitals he practices at so I know him quite well both socially and professionally.

And yes, we get CNN in Kentucky. I think there are six people in Louisville and 2 in Lexington that watch it. Perhaps those 8 can elect him. I rather doubt it though.

And yes, he's doing somewhat better about campaining here where people can actually vote for him. From the start he's been running a national campaign for a Statewide office. People aren't impressed. That would be people who can actually vote for him. His supporters outside Kentucky could all send him the maximum allowable contribution and it will not get him elected here. To be elected he simply has to pay attention to those who can elect him. He announced his candidacy in NEW YORK. Not Louisville, not Lexington not even here at home in Bowling Green, but NEW YORK. People (The people who can actually vote for him) are still offended. They should be. I'm just one of many holding this opinion.

I hope he wins. I fear if he dosen't develop some political savvy and quick, he won't.

This is what I'm hearing you say...

"I like him, but I don't because of where he chose to announce. It's nice that he's different but he better hurry and and start acting like everyone else and I hope people vote for him but I'm not"

So what is it you're saying? You pointed out that you were upset at the location of his announcement. You said others were as well and they had a right to.

You said he needed to learn some poloitical skill. You are upset that he is running a national campaign for a state office.

If an outsider has to come in and defeat the establishment, what would you recommend the strategy be?

I'm saying that, from the outset, his campaign has been laughable.

First he hires a kid whose sole experience in life was being a bassist in a local grunge band. Then he failed to vet the kid leading to widespread reports that his campaign MANAGER was a racist. I disproved that rumor with 30 minutes of googling. Trouble is, the average voter won't spend 3 minutes, much less 30, disproving the rumor. An intelligent person would have checked the kid out before hiring him. Now Paul will suffer the rest of his campaign for his lack of research.

Then he loses a staffer by prohibiting her from speaking ill of the republican party. Gave people the impression he's toeing a line set by the republicans. Yes, he's running on the republican ticket. Yes he needs their support. But, it really made him look bad to conservatives who don't align themselves with the republican party. It should have been handled discreetly rather than upsetting the girl enough to send her to the press.

Regarding his announcement, it appeared as though New York was more important than Kentucky. It's just really poor form. The fine citizens of New York can't vote for him yet. The people of Kentucky can. I can't imagine how anyone can justify such a blunder.

Then, just like his father, he runs anywhere in the United States where they'll take his picture. CNN, Fox News any outlet that will give him airtime. At this point in his political career he needs to be here trying to convince the people who can vote for him to do so. There may be a time when he needs national exposure. This certainly isn't it. Every dollar or day he spends chasing national coverage is a dollar & a day he doesn't have to convince the people of Kentucky to vote for him.


Edited for spelling.
