McConnell bus tour continues in western Ky.

Posted: Updated:
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell will have campaign stops in five western Kentucky counties today.

The Senate minority leader will hold events in Ohio, Muhlenberg, Hopkins, Henderson and Union counties. The stops in Muhlenberg and Hopkins counties will feature fellow Republican Sen. Rand Paul.

McConnell has represented Kentucky for nearly 30 years in the U.S. Senate. But he is facing the toughest re-election campaign of his career against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes. Libertarian candidate David Patterson is also on the ballot.

Last week, McConnell toured 10 counties in eastern Kentucky while Grimes spoke at an event in Hazard featuring former Democratic President Bill Clinton. The two candidates are scheduled to participate in a forum next week in Louisville moderated by the Kentucky Farm Bureau.
