I have already reported that there is some speculation that Kim Davis could be a strong Rand challenger from inside the Republican Party.
This, of course, doesn't mean Democrats aren't plotting to take the senate seat currently held by Rand.
Joseph Gert at The Courier-Journal reports:
Patrick Hughes, chairman of the state Democratic Party, said he’s hopeful that the party will be able to come up with a top-tier candidate to challenge Paul, who Democrats believe is weakened by a presidential run that has faltered...
Talk in the party has largely settled around actress Ashley Judd and state Veterans Affairs Commissioner Heather French Henry, and there are some in the party who are holding out hope that some wealthy business person who’s not been involved in politics before will step forward.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, who lost the Democratic primary to challenge Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2008, is also often mentioned as a possible challenger.-RW
