March Madness is spilling over into Kentucky’s U.S. Senate Race. Grayson’s campaign posted an ad on his website this weekend that shows Rand Paul saying he is a Duke Blue Devil.

March Madness is spilling over into Kentucky’s U.S. Senate Race.

Trey Grayson continues along his theme of “There are big differences between Rand Paul and me” campaign ads.  This time, Grayson hopes to score a win with the Big Blue nation.

Grayson’s campaign posted an ad on his website this weekend that shows Rand Paul saying he is a Duke Blue Devil.  Grayson’s campaign emailed a link to the commercial during the NCAA Selection Sunday show on CBS.

 

Rand Paul graduated from Duke Medical School.  Grayson earned an MBA and law degree from UK.

Trey Grayson is offering “Beat Duke, Vote Grayson” bumper stickers on his website.

Grayson’s campaign manager Nate Hodson said, “We’re just having some fun. This was a lighthearted web ad to energize our supporters.  We all know there’s no place like Kentucky in March.”

 
Rand Paul’s campaign issued the following statements.

"Well, I guess that might be a real issue if you're running for student council. It's especially funny watching my Harvard-educated opponent complain about where I went to medical school."

"The Grayson campaign has to have set some kind of record for going from establishment candidate of the Washington D.C. insiders to a joke of a campaign in the shortest amount of time. On Friday, they had a volunteer running around in circles in a chicken suit in Lexington. Now, it's this goofy ad. What's next for the Grayson campaign, a cow-tipping contest?

If anyone still needed proof Rand Paul is the one candidate who can take on the established order and lead the charge for a balanced federal budget, a constitutional government and strong national defense, this should take care of it."

David Adams, campaign manager
