Leading Political Website: McConnell Tough To Defeat

A leading political website says Kentucky democrats will have a tough time defeating republican Senator Mitch McConnell this year.

Larry Sabato's "Crystal Ball" says McConnell enjoys the triple threat of incumbency, a huge campaign war chest and a powerful leadership position in Washington.

The site calls Bruce Lunsford and Greg Fischer the leading candidates for the democratic nomination.

    I don't care what the website says, I'm not voting for him again! He's gotten to big for his britches and doesn't deserve another term in office! He's not thinking of the citizens of KY anymore, he's thinking about HIMSELF! I'll vote for any democrat that has enough guts to run against him!

    Never say never. I am a Republican and I myself am not very happy with Mitch or Jim Bunning for that matter. #1. They are to (edited) old, I am tired of old men with old ideas and the good old boy network. #2 Mitch used to be the Majority Whip and what did he bring home to Kentucky in all of that time? NOTHING! He is doing no better as Minority Whip either. Look at Robert Byrd of West VA. old as dirt, a former Klansmen and he gets more Federal money per capita than any other Congressman in D.C. We need to demand more of our Senators and Congressmen up in Washington. Let them know that we hold them accountable and if they don't produce they can be sent home come election time.
