Bunning Regrets Endorsing Paul

Calling it the lesser of two evils, former U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning surprised political observers when he said he regreted endorsing Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in the 2010 Senate race.

The surly baseball Hall of Famer recently gave a nod to state Rep. Alecia Webb-Edgington to succeed retiring Congressman Geoff Davis, but indicated he’s been more tepid since backing Paul two years ago.

From Cincinnati Inquirer (h/t FatLip):

“I endorsed in the U.S. Senate race,” Bunning said. “I took the lesser of two evils there. One person didn’t tell me the truth, and the other person I wasn’t sure what he would do when he got there. He’s disappointed me since he’s got there.”

Ouch!

One can assume that the days of Bunning being Paul’s role model have ended.
