Bunning Changes Support

Governor Fletcher’s bid for re-election has been dealt a setback by Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning.

The U.S. senator announced he’ll support Anne Northup for governor.

Bunning plans to address the media tomorrow, Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2007, to explain his reasons. He said he decided to back Northup in the GOP primary because he thinks she can win the primary in May and the November general election.

Paducah businessman Billy Harper has also filed to run on the Republican ticket.
