More on the Kentucky Senate Race

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., Thursday all but declared Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) unsuitable for office following "outrageous statements" and "increased belligerence."

The editorial endorsed Senator Bunning's rival, Dan Mongiardo.

I have not, however, seen any recent polling data on this race. I imagine that it is getting big play in Kentucky and that it cannot be good for Bunning, but I haven't seen any firm evidence either way so far.

[UPDATE - Finally some polling, according to Dem. leaning poll, the race is now tied at 43, a 4 point bump for Mongiardo and a four point loss for Bunning from the last poll that this group did. Not enough to draw any firm conclusions, but certainly enough to cause some panicking in certain circles.]
