Randal Howard “Rand” Paul (born January 7, 1963) is an American politician and a former ophthalmologist who serves as the junior United States Senator for Kentucky, in office since 2011. He is a member of the Republican Party and the son of former U.S. Representative and presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas.
A graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine, Paul began practicing ophthalmology in Bowling Green, Kentucky in 1993 and established his own clinic in December 2007. He became active in politics and founded Kentucky Taxpayers United in 1994, of which he is still chairman. He first received national attention in 2008 when making political speeches on behalf of his father, who was campaigning for the Republican Party’s nomination for president. In 2010, Paul ran for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky, defeating Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson in the Republican primary. He subsequently defeated the Democratic nominee, Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, in the general election. (source)
