Tea Party Plays Major Role in 4th District Race

What role each of them had in whoever wins or loses in Kentucky’s primary on Tuesday will likely be the major theme. This race will test the power of the super PAC, said Trey Grayson, who heads Harvard’s Institute of Politics, served as Kentucky’s secretary of state and ran against U.S. Sen. Rand Paul in 2010.
