Rand Paul, Dan Coats Take Senate Seats
Republicans scored two early victories in an election that is supposed to create turnover for the House and the Senate.
During the campaign, Paul chastised his opponent state Attorney General Jack Conway for an ad referencing Paul's time as a student at Baylor University, asking whether he was a member of a secret society.
"I believe that those who stoop to the level of attacking a man's religious beliefs to gain higher office," Paul said during a debate. "I believe that they should remember that it does not profit a man to gain the world if he loses his soul in the process."
Right before the election, a new ad paid for by a group that opposed Paul accused him of mocking Jesus Christ and Christians.
CT spoke with Coats, a graduate of Wheaton College, back when he first retired from the Senate.
