Paul Claims Tea Party Mandate

November 2, 2010

Kentucky Senator-elect Rand Paul (R) claimed a Tea Party mandate from his decisive victory over Attorney General Jack Conway (D), in his victory remarks Tuesday night.

"I have a message from the people of Kentucky, a message that is loud and clear and does not mince words: we've come to take our government back," Paul said. "Tonight, there's a Tea Party tidal wave, and we're sending a message to them. It's a message that I will carry with me on day 1 -- it's a message of fiscal sanity, it's a message of limited constitutional government and balanced budgets."

Paul leads Conway 55 percent to 42 percent, with 82 percent of precincts reporting.

Conway offered his congratulations to Paul in a downbeat concession speech, saying that "we all ought to wish him well" in the Senate.

Paul, the son of libertarian-minded congressman Ron Paul, will be the first father-son duo in Congress since Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) served together.
