Secretary of State Trey Grayson picked up a key conservative endorsement this week.
The founder of Focus on the Family, Dr. James Dobson, calls Grayson “the only candidate with the conviction to lead on the issues that matter to Kentucky families.” Dobson says Grayson’s “unwavering commitment to the sanctity of human life and the family resonates with me.”
Rand Paul’s campaign issued this statement.
"Interestingly, this is the second time in two weeks Dr. Dobson has ventured abroad to endorse an establishment moderate in a U.S. Senate race. I'm not sure what that means. As far as reaction from Rand Paul's campaign, I'd say we will stick with our conservative pro-life endorsements from Sarah Palin, Jim Bunning, Northern Kentucky Right to Life and Concerned Women for America and the seven hundred thousand members of Kentucky Credit Union League who support Rand Paul in his efforts to restore constitutional government for Kentuckians."

Grayson commented, “I am humbled to have the endorsement of Dr. Dobson. He is a well-respected leader on the issues of life and family, which are important to the foundation of our country. If I am elected, Kentuckians have my word that I will be a strong, conservative voice for them in the U.S. Senate. ”
