Stumbo Considers Joining Senate Race

A tough 2008 U.S. Senate race may be brewing in Kentucky.

Democratic Attorney General Greg Stumbo says he's being encouraged and is considering challenging Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.

Stumbo says he'll know in the next month or two whether he's going to make the race against McConnell who would be seeking his fifth term in Washington.

Stumbo's comments came during today's taping of 'Kentucky Newsmakers' which airs tomorrow morning at eleven on WKYT.

    Hon. Stumbo would be a strong candidate against Mitch McConnell, he could probably beat him with the right people supporting him, ALTHOUGH IT WOULD BE A TOUGH RACE. Greg is a die hard Kentuckian and TRUE DEMOCRAT. He would not forget about Kentucky the way Mitch has done for so many years. GO GREG!!!! yOU HAVE MY VOTE FOR SENATE!
