Bunning Remains In Race, Williams Considering Bid

From Kentucky Public Radio's Tony McVeighKentucky Senate President David Williams is still showing interest in the U-S Senate seat currently held by Senator Jim Bunning. Williams told reporters at the GOP Lincoln Dinner in Louisville Saturday night, if Bunning stays in the race and continues to have trouble raising funds, then “Someone will have to take him on."“I don’t see any of the other people talking about running that have enough guts to take him on," he says. "I’ve never been short on guts. Sometimes I’ve made the wrong decision, but you know I’d take him on if I felt like it was necessary for Republicans to hold the seat in the United States Senate.”Despite difficulties raising money, and the lack of an endorsement from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Bunning is pressing on. He told the GOP faithful at the dinner he’s running for a third term because his core conservative values are under attack by Democrats in Washington.
