Rand Paul, running for the Kentucky U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jim Bunning, has raised over $100,000 so far today in a money bomb to beat the $500-a-plate Washington fundraiser being held tonight by his Republican primary opponent, Secretary of State Trey Grayson. Meanwhile Peter Schiff, eying Chris Dodd’s Connecticut Senate seat, picked up an endorsement today from economic analyst Michael (Mish) Shedlock — an interesting development, since Shedlock has been critical of Schiff in the past.
