Rand Paul

Rand Paul

Dr. Rand Paul was elected to the United States Senate from the state of Kentucky in 2010. He successfully challenged the Republican establishment in Kentucky, soundly defeating both a Republican primary opponent and the Democrat Senate nominee and giving great hope and encouragement to Tea Party activists, conservatives and libertarians across America.

Rand has been married for 19 years to the former Kelley Ashby, who is originally from Russellville, Kentucky.  Rand and Kelley have three sons:  William, 17; Duncan, 13; and Robert, 10.
Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, where Rand has practiced medicine and performed eye surgery for 17 years.  Rand owns his own ophthalmology practice, which employs 3 full-time staff members.
He is the third of five children born to Carol and Ron Paul.  He grew up in Lake Jackson, Texas and attended Baylor University.  He graduated from Duke Medical School in 1988.  Dr. Paul completed a general surgery internship at Georgia Baptist Medical Center in Atlanta and completed his residency in ophthalmology at Duke University Medical Center.   Upon completion of his training in 1993, Rand and Kelley moved to Bowling Green to start their family and begin his ophthalmology practice.

In 1993, Dr. Paul founded the Kentucky Taxpayers United (KTU) in an effort to better inform all Kentuckians on how their elected officials were voting on key spending and taxation issues.   KTU is a non-partisan citizens watchdog group dedicated to rating the state legislature’s tax honesty.   Rand’s work with KTU has helped to promote the Americans for Tax Reform pledge, which commits legislators to keeping their promises regarding income tax increases.

Rand is a devoted husband and father.  He regularly volunteers to coach teams for each of his three sons in Little League baseball, soccer, and basketball.  Rand and Kelley have been members of The Presbyterian Church since 1993, where Kelley currently serves as a Deacon.   Rand Paul is a hard-working, dedicated physician, not a career politician.  His entrance into politics is indicative of his life’s work:  a desire to diagnose problems and provide practical solutions.
