Meanwhile, Sen. Jim Bunnings (R-Ky.) weekly conference call with state political reporters again served to highlight the GOPs ongoing soap opera in the Bluegrass State Senate race.
In what has become a regular occurrence, Bunning teed off on fellow Kentucky Republican and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
After calling McConnell a control freak, Bunning claimed that he would be better-served if McConnell didnt back him for a third term in 2010.
Bunnings weekly conference calls with Kentucky press have provided an ongoing glimpse into just how much the relationship between the two Kentucky Senators has deteriorated as Bunning fights for re-election without McConnells help.
On Tuesday, Bunning again blamed McConnell for Republican losses in the Senate during the past two election cycles. He said he and McConnell have been at odds since December, when Bunning said McConnell told him he was too old to run for re-election, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.
McConnells office had no comment Tuesday on Bunnings conference call.
