Incumbent Mitch McConnell Easily Defeats Tea Party Challenger Matt Bevin in Kentucky GOP Primary


Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell defeated his GOP Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin in the Kentucky primary by 25%, just one of many races on Super Primary Tuesday. There is a saying, we get the government that we voted for. With so many people claiming to be tired of the same old way that Washington DC is run … last night in primaries across the United States on both sides, the same old establishment candidates won. In Georgia, a Senate Republican primary headed to a runoff with the two candidates, ex-CEO of Dollar General David Perdue and Rep. Jack Kingston.

Mitch McConnell and Alison Lundergan Grimes ran victory laps Tuesday in Kentucky as they rallied their party faithful to nominate them for a colossal showdown in November that could help decide which party controls the U.S. Senate.

Grimes, Kentucky’s Democratic Secretary of State, rolled to victory over nominal primary opposition. And McConnell easily defeated tea party-backed challenger Matt Bevin, who spent $3.3 million in his failed bid to oust the five-term Republican Senate leader.

Um, isn’t Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell one of those powers to be that he is referencing in his own speech?

As Powerline opines, it is time for Republicans and Conservatives to understand who is their greater foe, “As John has pointed out, McConnell’s lifetime ACU rating, after 28 years in the Senate, ‘is certifiably right-wing at 90%.’ Given that record and the importance of wresting control of the Senate away from Harry Reid and the Democrats, it’s difficult to believe that Republicans will not unite behind McConnell in the fight against Grimes.”

      Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid are prime examples of why the States need to force repeal of the 17th amendment to get the control of the Senate as the founders of our Constitutional Republic intended.

      In Kentucky two national TeaParty groups, Tea Party Nation & , both endorsed Mitch McConnell, So why is there this story saying TeaP lost ? To my knowledge the Tea Party didnt endorese his opponent… AND Conservatives strongly opposed McConnell’s TeaP endorsement after he took $3B bribe in budget for KY just to help pass Obozo/ReidTard’s debt ceiling spending bill in senate …
      SM: Because the MSM will take every opportunity to trash the Tea Party.

      McConnel is little more than a RINO. Along with most of the so called “Republican” politicians in office now. They are weak and have no spine to
      fight the communists that have overtaken our politics.
