Lunsford Enters Race; Hopes To Unseat McConnell

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Wealthy Louisville businessman Bruce
Lunsford entered the U.S. Senate race on Tuesday with hopes of unseating one of the most powerful men in the nation.
Lunsford will have to win an eight-man Democratic primary in order to face Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the top-ranking Republican in the Senate.
Lunsford finished second last spring in the Democratic gubernatorial primary behind Steve Beshear, who went on to be elected governor.
Another wealthy Louisville entrepreneur, Greg Fischer, is already in the Democratic primary for the Senate seat. So is Iraq war veteran Andrew Horne, Louisville-area doctor Michael Cassaro, and four other candidates.
