Jim Bunning In Re-election Trouble
Hall of Famer and Republican Senator from Kentucky Jim Bunning is facing re-election in November 2010 for a third term...and although it's very early things aren't looking good. A new poll by Public Policy Polling finds his favorablility rating at 28%. [Most incumbents at least want to sit above 45% this far out.] But more importantly, when going head-to-head against the leading four Democratic challengers Bunning come up short each time. Plus, Bunning has admitting that his fundraising has been less than encouraging.
