Interest in Calls from Bunning Growing

Frankfort, KY – A spokesman for Republican Senator Jim Bunning says the 77-year-old northern Kentuckian's weekly press teleconferences are becoming more popular. In the latest one, Bunning charges government bureaucrats are to blame for Cold War heroes dying before their claims are processed, leaving their families with no compensation. Political blogger David Adams says Bunning makes news every time he talks. The rise in popularity of the Senator's conferences may be because he faces potentially strong challengers in next year's election.
