Bunning: McConnell Is A “Control Freak”

Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY), who has openly accused his party leadership of trying to force him into retirement — especially his Kentucky co-Senator, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell — is making it clear just how much he personally detests McConnell.

In a conference call with reporters, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports, Bunning declared that McConnell is a “control freak,” and responded strongly to the leader’s refusal to endorse Bunning’s re-election this past weekend on Fox News Sunday.

Said Bunning: “If Mitch McConnell doesn’t endorse me, it could be the best thing that ever happened to me in Kentucky.”
