"We congratulate Senator McConnell on his victory and urge Republicans in Kentucky to come together to defeat Alison Lundergan Grimes," Senate Conservatives Fund executive director Matt Hoskins said in a statement. "We thank Matt Bevin for standing up for conservative principles and giving voters a choice in this race. Now it's time for Republicans to unite for victory in November."

The Senate Conservatives Fund repeatedly argued that McConnell had effectively thwarted Republican attempts to repeal Obamacare and questioned his conservative credentials.
