Bunning releases statement on Paul victory

(CNN) – CNN National Political Correspondent Jessica Yellin reports that Sen. Jim Bunning issued a statement Tuesday evening following Rand Paul's victory in the Kentucky Senate GOP primary. Bunning, a fellow Republican, is retiring at the end of the year and Paul is running to replace him.

Read Bunning's statement after the jump.

Sen. Jim Bunning statement congratulating Dr. Rand Paul on winning the Kentucky primary for the U.S. Senate:

"I want to congratulate Dr. Paul on a hard fought victory in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate. Dr. Paul is the right man to win in November and his victory today is a clear signal to the Washington establishment to shake things up. Dr. Paul is a strong conservative who will be his own man in Washington and work to end the bailouts, stop wasteful spending, and defend our Kentucky values. He will fight to take our government back."
