Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) are scheduled to headline a fundraiser for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kurt Bills. The event will be held at David and Jo Thoburn's home in Vienna, VA on July 24. Donors are being asked to give $350.
Jeff Lorsung, Finance Director for Kurt Bills' U.S. Senate campaign, said he hopes the fundraiser will fetch between $25,000 and $30,000 for the campaign. Bills has received the backing of Ron and Rand Paul, support that helped him win the GOP endorsement in June.
"With both having Ron and Rand endorsements, and with Kurt running on a platform to revitalize America, there are quite a lot of folks who support the idea of sending a citizen legislator to Washington," Lorsung said.
Bills is working to boost his fundraising account as he tries to unseat DFL Sen. Amy Klobuchar. The latest fundraising report showed Klobuchar with a significant fundraising advantage over Bills. She has $5.5 million in the bank. Bills had $64,681 in the bank.
Go Kurt Bills! He's the real deal. I met him 2 weeks ago. He will carry on the things Ron Paul believes in. We need more like him.
We need more people like Mr. Bills in Washington who ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND ECONOMICS.
Amy Klobuchar is a very nice lady, but she simply does not grasp the national debt and what it means for our future standard of living. Glad to see someone like Kurt challenging her.

The Louisville Slugger, and the ball.
Rand Paul running in Kentucky may have been the Louisville Slugger of his moment. Yet, expectations should remain reasonable in Minnesota.
