Bunning Not Backing Fletcher

US Senator Jim Bunning says he’s not ready to support Governor Fletcher’s re-election bid.

Bunning said in a conference call today, “... Not all the players are in the game ...” and that he is waiting on decisions by some members of Kentucky’s congressional delegation, specifically Anne Northup and Hal Rogers.

Bunning also offered the Republicans a bit of advice by saying that if the Republicans want to hold on to the Governor’s mansion, they need the best candidate and it may not be Fletcher.

Bunning’s comments come just five days after US Senator Mitch McConnell also declined to endorse Fletcher.
