Bunning/Mongiardo Make Final Campaign Stops
Louisville, KY – Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Daniel Mongiardo kept up his theme of promising to help improve the health care system as the Appalachian doctor wrapped up a state-wide bus tour Sunday.
He claime dhe had the momentum on the last weekend before election day. The Democrat said his opponent...incumbent Republican Jim Bunning's appearance Sunday night with President Bush wouldn't hide Bunning's failed record as a first term Senator.
Bunning highlighted his steadfast support of Bush during his own bus tour of Knetucky that ended Friday. President Bush is heavily favored to carry Kentucky in Tuesday's election.
Bunning appeared with Bush at the Great America Ballpark in Cincinnati Sunday night.
Mongiardo made stops in central Kentucky and appeared with Illinois U.S. Senate candidate Barack Obama at a late-night rally in Louisville. Obama gave the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention this summer.
