McConnell, Lunsford make sweeps through state today

Candidates for U.S. Senate Mitch McConnell and Bruce Lunsford are making final sweeps through Kentucky today to make a last pitch to voters. 

The Herald-Leader’s Ryan Alessi caught up with McConnell, the incumbent Republican from Louisville, in Lexington this morning and said McConnell was reluctant to analyze how the race has shaped up in the last few weeks. 

McConnell will be in Owensboro this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. for a stop at the Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport. Other stops along his route include Hebron in northern Kentucky, Lexington, Bowling Green, Hopkinsville and West Paducah.

Lunsford, a Louisville Democrat, is making his own tour around the state, and will be stopping in Greenville in Muhlenberg County at the county party’s headquarters.

Lunsford will be joined by Gov. Steve Beshear for many of the day’s stops, which include events in Lexington, Hopkinsville, Bowling Green and Paducah.

Update…

Pat Crowley with the Kentucky Enquirer is reporting about an unexpected encounter at a northern Kentucky airport this morning. 

Lunsford arrived at the airport to catch a private plane for the trip to his next stop and encountered a group of McConnell supporters gathered for the senator’s appearance at the same hangar.
