KY-Sen: Grayson No Lock To Hold Senate Seat for GOP In Kentucky
An intriguing new set of numbers out of the Bluegrass State, as we look ahead to 2010. Rasmussen polls Kentucky's Senate race, and finds that presumptive GOP frontrunner Trey Grayson is dead-even (40-40) with Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway, while he leads Democratic Lt. Governor Dan Mongiardo by seven points (44-37). If quasi-Libertarian superhero Rand Paul is the nominee for the GOP, Conway beats him (42-38), while Mongiardo does not (43-38). Among the most interesting stats, the Rasmussen poll has fairly high job approval (59%) for Democratic Governor Steve Beshear.
