Tea Party Challenger To McConnell: ‘Be A Man, Run On Your Record’

AP

Matt Bevin, the Tea-Partier challenging incumbent Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in the Republican primary, called on the five-term senator to “be a man” and “run on his record.”

“I beg him to tell the people of Kentucky anything that he promises to do in the next six years, that he has been somehow unable to get done in the last 30 years,” Bevin said Saturday at the Fancy Farm event in Kentucky in an interview with Now This News. “Or one thing in the last 30 years that he is proud enough of that he can actually run on that, as oppose to smearing me and Alison and Ed or anyone else in the race”
