The Kentucky Primary Race – Mitch McConnell VS Matt Bevin

(Via SCF) There is no Senate race in the country that is more important than the Republican primary election in Kentucky between Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and conservative businessman Matt Bevin (R-KY).

The outcome of the Republican primary in Kentucky will determine the direction of the Republican Party for years to come.

If Mitch McConnell wins, the party will continue to drift away from its conservative principles and become increasingly hostile to the grassroots. But if Matt Bevin wins, the establishment’s stranglehold over the party will be broken and power will be restored to the people who elect these politicians.

We have several things to report on this race and we hope you will take a few minutes to read this important update.

– Matt Bevin is gaining national attention.

Mitch McConnell likes to tell his Beltway friends that Matt Bevin isn’t a credible candidate, but the truth is Bevin is one of the most compelling Republican candidates running anywhere in the country.

If he were running in any other race, the party would be holding him up as their top recruit. It’s only because he’s running against the leader of the Republican establishment that they attack him.

Politico published a major profile article on Bevin’s campaign last week, a clear sign that the national media is beginning to take him seriously.

Read the story and watch the short interview they taped with Bevin.

– Matt Bevin is winning local support.

Matt Bevin is building support in Kentucky and gaining on Mitch McConnell in the polls. Bevin trailed by 50 points when he entered the race, but now he’s behind by as few as 20 points. He’s working hard and has cut McConnell’s lead in half.

Bevin just won the support of Bernie Kunkel, one of Senator Rand Paul’s district directors, who announced this week that he’s leaving Paul’s office to work for Bevin’s campaign. “I have to help the best man in the upcoming U.S. Senate race and that man is Matt Bevin. It is time for a change,” Kunkel said.

And there are new converts emerging across the state. One political operative in Kentucky who writes an influential blog recently wrote this:

“Matt Bevin is a man of character and tells it like it is. I met him a few times when I was attending Tea Party meetings and GOP picnics throughout Kentucky. I spoke to him in great lengths when I was previously supporting McConnell and he took the time to listen and offer up his views. I knew then that he was a great family man and a great American, but Matt Bevin is a man that simply gets it. He understands the situation in both Kentucky and Washington, but he also offers a fresh outlook and competitive spirit that will surely get more Kentuckians to give him a listen.”

– Matt Bevin is uniting the conservative movement.

Bevin won the endorsement of FreedomWorks last week, one of the nation’s largest grassroots organizations. As many of you may know, FreedomWorks has been instrumental in helping candidates like Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Ted Cruz (R-TX) overcome long odds.

Matt Kibbe, the president of FreedomWorks, said, “Now more than ever, we need strong fiscal conservatives who will fight to cut spending on the front lines, not the sidelines. Matt Bevin is a great upgrade for Kentuckians who are serious about transparency, fiscal responsibility, and accountability in government.”

There are now several major conservative groups backing Bevin’s campaign, including the Senate Conservatives Fund, FreedomWorks, Madison Project, and Gun Owners of America. He’s also been endorsed by leading conservative voices like Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Erick Erickson.

    Matt Bevin deserved the endorsements of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, but won’t receive them, since they both admitted to Sean Hannity that they will not endorse any candidate who challenges a GOP incumbent. For this reason, Matt Bevin needs the assistance and support of the grass roots membership of every conservative in America. Nothing will change in Washington if Mitch McConnell is allowed to maintain his stranglehold on the GOP, and the Senate. Send him home with his tail between his legs.

    DITCH MITCH!.

    When is the primary?

    • Dead Dog Bounce says:

      It’s May 20th, answering my own question.

      Ooh, Mitch is going to be really worried: 15 and a bit weeks. Bevin just needs to pick up 1% a week + a 5% surge. I need to look at betting odds.

    The family photo is precious.

    Get this: even the dog is black and white.

    The Lefties are going to, again, show how evil they are, if they see this photo. They probably already have, I’m just not going to look for it.

    They will rear their ugly heads and howl their evil insanity, as usual. They will spit and fling s**t. They will snarl and bare their teeth and foam, like only the possessed can do. They will RAGE.

    The Left will do what they do, when they see a conservative family with nonwhite children: become Gollum when he doesn’t have the One Ring.

    No problem.)

    God bless all of those willing to publicly endorse this great man!

  8. Thank you for talking about this important primary in KY! Youth for Bevin supports Matt Bevin begins he’s a TRUE conservative, and we’re going to do everything we can to spread the word and help him get elected on May 20th! https://www.facebook.com/youthforbevin

    I really have to say that this man certainly is a man to elect if we are to continue working toward the restoration of principled leadership in America. This nation is at a crossroads. We make the choice to pursue liberty or not.

    • doodahdaze says:

      Today Bonehead said he does not want the GOP to be the opposition party. He wants the GOP to be the alternative party. ??? What in the world does this mean? Ahhh Dunno.

  10. Bevin 4 US Senate says:

    Electing Bevin is a win-win for Kentucky, it gets rid of Mitch McConnell and gets a real tea party conservative in Congress.
    Ditch Mitch!

  12. Paul Brokaw says:

    Bevin would be a vast improvement over Mitch. That is not the question. The real question is can he beat Allison-Grimes who will be well financed and have the full force of the National Democrat Party behind her. Don’t mean to be contrary, but we don’t need a replay of Nevada or Delaware here in Kentucky. Rather see Mitch return to the Senate than hand the Democrats a new seat.
