Kentucky Surprise?

Democrats are touting a new poll that shows the Kentucky Senate race between GOP incumbent Jim Bunning and Democratic challenger Daniel Mongiardo tied, at 43 percent to 43 percent. A couple weeks ago, the same pollster had it 47-39 for Bunning. Count me skeptical on the new numbers, but I will say this: Earlier this year, some Democrats said that Kentucky would be their dark-horse race.
