Sen. Mitch McConnell spread the praise around lavishly tonight at the 5th District Lincoln Day Dinner. He lauded Rep. Hal Rogers as the longest-serving member of Congress in Kentucky's history.
"I think our Senate President David Williams has done a fabulous job," McConnell said.
Of Secretary of State Trey Grayson, he said "we're going to hear a lot from him in the future."
The closest he got to mentioning Sen. Jim Bunning came at the end of his speech when he said "both of our Senators are Republicans and we intend to keep it that way."
