Kentucky Republican Rand Paul , the son of Texas congressman and 2008 presidential candidate Ron Paul, has organized an “exploratory” campaign for the Senate seat of Republican incumbent Jim Bunning .

Rand Paul, an eye surgeon from Bowling Green, disclosed his plans Thursday night on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC program and in a press release on Friday.  

“The Republican Party’s lost their mojo,” Paul said on MSNBC. He added, “We’ve lost our believability. It’s not that our message is so bad, but we’ve said we’re fiscal conservatives, and then we doubled the deficit.”
