Bunning will stay in race
By Carrie Pond
Washington, D.C – Kentucky U.S. Senator Jim Bunning says he doesn't expect any major Republican opposition in next year's primary election. Bunning also told reporters this morning that fundraising has been going well in the second quarter. He declined to say how much money he has raised. Several Republicans have expressed interest in Bunning's seat, including Secretary of State Trey Grayson and Bowling Green physician Rand Paul. However, Grayson and Paul have said they don't plan to run unless Bunning were to drop out of the race. Bunning said again today he intends to stay in.
