McConnell Campaign Sets Fund-raising Record

U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell's campaign announced Thursday it raised three million dollars in the second quarter of this year.

That's a record for any federal candidate in Kentucky.
So far, McConnell has raised 15 million dollars for his campaign and has 9 million dollars left to spend on the November election.

Bruce Lunsford's camp is criticizing MConnell's money as coming from special interests. Lunsford, who is a democrat, will likely face McConnell in the fall.

    All I know is McConnell has got to go. That man is attached to Bush and he should be thrown out with the trash.

    I have voted for Mitch all of my life and I can't vote for him this time. I am not votinig for that sorry a** Bruce Lunsford either, he is just a crook looking to feed from the Federel trough. I am going out on a limb and voting for Sonny Landham, I hope a majority of the rest of you will as well and maybe we can get something started in this state.
