Courier-Journal: McConnell Goes Back On His Word To Kentucky GOP

This is simply disgraceful. First, the Mitch McConnell promised fundraise in Kentucky during the Governor's race after he brought George W. Bush to Louisville and dried up money for other Republican candidates. Now, the Louisville liberal is going back on his word. The Courier-Journal reports:
Earlier this year, when Bush came to town to raise money for McConnell, the senator said he planned to suspend active fundraising in Kentucky until after this year's gubernatorial election. His chief of staff, Billy Piper, said that's still the plan. McConnell won't hold fundraising events in the state but will continue to solicit money by mail.
Why? Because McConnell apparently thinks he's vulnerable:
McConnell, a Republican, recently sent out a fundraising letter saying he faces the toughest re-election fight of his career.
Sounds like he's hearing Larry Forgy has his number!
