A huge win for the more radical, insurgent wing of the GOP: Rand Paul — son of Ron — has won the Kentucky GOP primary over establishment candidate Trey Grayson, who was favoured by GOP leader Mitch McConnell.The AP just called the race. It was a landslide.

Rand, who like his father is a doctor, is expected to win in November, meaning a very big perch for a strong libertarian voice.

No word yet on whether Arlen Specter will win his primary in Pennsylvania, nor do we know about Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas
