Kentucky's GOP Senate race roiled over racism charges

The Republican U.S. Senate campaign of Rand Paul confirmed Thursday night that its spokesman, Christopher Hightower, resigned after political blogs listed controversial materials related to him. A blog reported that Hightower had posted on his MySpace page for two years a statement from someone else declaring "Happy N***** Day" near Martin Luther King Day and a photo of a lynching.
