Former president touts Lunsford

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- Former President Bill Clinton is promoting Bruce Lunsford's Senate campaign by linking Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell to the nation's economic problems.

Clinton was greeted by a boisterous crowd of about 500 Lunsford supporters at a midday rally in Paducah on Friday. Clinton and Lunsford will make another campaign stop in Bowling Green as Lunsford tries to bolster support in western Kentucky -- a key battleground in the Senate race.

Clinton said the country got to see the consequences of Republican policies under President Bush and a GOP-led Congress. Clinton said McConnell, as a Republican Senate leader, played a critical role in shaping those policies.
