There are primaries happening today across the country - in Oregon, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Kentucky. We look closer at the race in Kentucky where a Tea Party favorite, Rand Paul, the son of Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.), is leading in primary polls over GOP establishment candidate Trey Greyson..

We get a live update from Gabe Bullard, a reporter for WFPL in Louisville, Ky., as polls open. And Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich looks at the effect a win by Paul could have on the direction of the GOP

I think Peg is mistaken about Rand Paul being from Kentucky:

"Rand Paul was born in Pennsylvania, to Carol Wells Paul, and Ron Paul, a US Air Force flight surgeon. Paul's parents married in 1957, and Paul was born six years later. He has four siblings: Ronnie, Lori, Robert, and Joy. As a child, his family moved from Pittsburgh to San Antonio in 1965, eventually settling in Surfside Beach, Texas in 1968.

Rand Paul attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and obtained an M.D. at his father's alma mater, Duke University School of Medicine.

Just checked - Rand Paul is from Kentucky - not a carpetbagger.
