Bunning Still Running
By Gabe Bullard
Louisville, KY – U.S. Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky says he will not abandon his bid for a third term in 2010, despite lackluster fundraising. Bunning raised just over 262 thousand dollars during the first three months of this year. In a speech to the Rotary Club of Louisville yesterday, Bunning said he is a viable candidate, and will not be swayed by reports that Republican leaders want him out of the race.
"People think THINK I'm too old. Or my terminal cancer has reoccurred. Well I'm kidding. These are some of the things that were said about me in the last election."
No high-profile Republicans have filed to challenge Bunning in the 2010 primary. Kentucky Senate President David Williams says he's thinking about entering the primary. On the Democratic side, Lt. Governor Dan Mongiardo and Attorney General Jack Conway have announced they'll run for Bunning's seat.
