Thomas Massie’s Republican primary victory Tuesday could set an example for campaigns across the country, some believe. The involvement of the tea party, super political action committees and Ron and Rand Paul in Massie’s campaign caught nationwide attention and earned front-page ink from the New York Times. Massie won 19 out of the 20 counties in Kentucky’s Fourth Congressional District and beat six other Republicans for the nomination for Congress with 45 percent of the vote. He will face Democrat Bill Adkins in the general election.
