Eye on the Senate: McConnell Non-Committal on Bunning

He didn’t exactly refuse to answer but Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky didn’t exactly endorse his home-state colleague Jim Bunning in his 2010 race, either.

“Your fellow Republican senator … Jim Bunning, is mad at you, I think it’s fair to say,” said “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace to McConnell. “He says you don’t want him to seek re-election and that while you’ve given money to other GOP incumbents, you’ve stiffed him.

You can put this all to rest right now, Senator,” Wallace said. “I’m going to give you the opportunity. Do you endorse Jim Bunning for re-election?”
