My question for Jim Bunning

Jim Bunning told the paper in Louisville he expects Republicans to lose four more seats and end up with 36 after the next election cycle.

My question for the Senator is which four? It's hard to imagine that if the GOP lost just four seats next year Bunning's wouldn't be one of them if he really does end up being the nominee for another term. Is he predicting his own defeat?

This whole spectacle is amusing but I have to guess at the end of the day he'll end up not running. It should still be a competitive race if Trey Grayson is the Republican nominee- much like it was the last time this seat was open when Bunning defeated Scotty Baesler by just half a point- but not nearly as good a Democratic pick up opportunity as it is now.
