Say it ain't so, Jim

I am truly sorry to hear that Senator Bunning will not be seeking re-election. Unfortunately, he was the only person who stood steadfast for Conservative Kentuckians in the Senate. His voice was our voice.

He made no bones about it when he disagreed with Mitch McConnell. He voted my conscience on issues about which I cared deeply. I am truly sorry to see him thrown under the bus by back-biting GOP here in Kentucky.

*sigh* I suppose this is yet another reason to drop my GOP party affiliation. Let the Republicans sort their own candidates out. I'll vote my conscience as I've always done regardless of the common sentiment that a vote for a third party candidate is a vote wasted. I'll "waste" a vote before I'll ever vote for a candidate who does not serve me in Congress.

Thank you for serving me so well in the Capitol, Senator Bunning. This Conservative will miss having her voice heard on the Hill when you retire. God speed.
