Trey Grayson Gets Ready to File

Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson will celebrate his filing for the U.S. Senate Republican primary with simultaneous house parties in 94 counties. Grayson will file next Thursday, January 14, 2009.

According to the Grayson campaign, the house parties will feature an "historic interactive, live video webcast moderated by a celebrity special guest host (to be announced later)." Go to to get invited to a house party or to watch the webcast. Apparently, Grayson will take questions.

Any guess as to the "celebrity special guest host?" Please let it not be Glenn Beck. The Rand Paul campaign reached out to Sarah Palin, but has been unable to land her thus far; could it be Palin? Maybe it's Tim Pawlenty, since he seems to be everywhere these days. But then again, he's not much of a celebrity at this point. I'm betting that it's someone in the media.

The Grayson press release about the announcement lists a range of issues that like Rand Paul hits hard on the economy:

The problems we face as a country are getting worse each day: record unemployment, growing deficits, out-of-control spending, dependence on foreign energy, threats to our national security - and the list could go on. Instead of tackling these problems in common-sense ways that stress individual responsibility and fiscal restraint, the liberal majority in Washington believes spending more tax dollars and expanding government will solve our problems. Clearly that's not working.

Unlike Paul, however, Grayson recognizes -- and is willing to say -- that terrorism is one of the most important issues that we face as a country.
