McConnell Strikes Again on TV Against GOP Challenger | #KYSEN (Video)

In his latest TV ad, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell attempts to undercut the credibility of his Republican primary challenger in Kentucky.

Referring to tea-party-backed Louisville businessman Matt Bevin as “Bailout Bevin,” the ad, supported by a six-figure buy, claims Bevin has prevaricated about past tax issues and his connection to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

A McConnell news release from this morning states that “it appears the only thing we really know about Matt Bailout Bevin is that he’s not a Kentucky conservative.”

The Bevin campaign responded swiftly, issuing a statement along with a picture of the certificate Bevin was issued from the EO/MIT Entrepreneurial Masters Program in 2008.

“Just when you think the lies can’t get any more ridiculous, Mitch McConnell proves that he’ll stoop to any level to hang on to his job,” Bevin said.

    Mr. Bevin will have the benefit of having the full support of the Tea Party and Mr. McConnell will not. This will be a replay of Crist v. Rubio. Bye, bye, Mr. McConnell!

    The Republican hacks in DC should be replaced with conservatives, or start voting and acting like conservatives.

    Where laws and regulations are used to restrict ways of doing things to those currently known, those restrictions prevent people from trying new ways of doing things and thus prevent innovation and technological advance.
