U.S. Senate Race

The Kentucky race for Mitch McConnell's U.S. Senate seat continues to draw national press, as Democrats fantasize that Ernie Fletcher may be contagious.

Two points to note from the AP article: University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato said McConnell remains the favorite in next year's race. "My money's on McConnell and always is because he has so much money," Sabato said. "He's the minority leader, and he's as wily as anybody in politics."

"I'm a bigger target, but I'm a pretty big boy," McConnell said. "And I'll tell you this, as I've said before, they throw a pebble at me, I'm going to throw a boulder back." Read the full article, here.

And as for those web rumors that McConnell is going to endorse Rudy Giuliani, Jefferson Poole is correct -- McConnell is not endorsing any presidential candidate.
