Conway Getting Out of Race: Rumor or Fact?

In the midst of the South Eastern Conference Basketball Tournament comes the word that Jack Conway may be getting out of the U.S. Senate race in Kentucky. This may be a rumor but in fact, it could be the case. Conway fared very poorly in just about every category in the USA Poll that was released last week.

I admit that it crossed my mind a few weeks ago that Conway might withdraw and instead seek the nomination for Governor next year. Not the best time to be an incumbent or a Democrat running for a seat in Washington. Incumbent Governor Steve Beshear has alienated most of Rural Kentucky and if you pair Conway with a popular figure from Western Kentucky then you might have one hell of a Primary next year.

I guess we will just have to see how all this shakes out.
