Shame on Mitch McConnell .....He says We Will ‘Crush’ Tea Party Challengers ‘Everywhere’

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell: We Will ‘Crush’ Tea Party Challengers ‘Everywhere’

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) believes that incumbent Republicans won’t have a problem holding their seats in the 2014 elections.

“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” McConnell said about Tea Party challengers in a New York Times interview published Saturday. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

McConnell faces a primary challenge from the right. The Senate Conservatives Fund, which backs Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin, believes the candidate has a chance of defeating McConnell the the primary.

“Mitch McConnell is clearly in trouble in this primary or he wouldn’t be attacking Matt Bevin and declaring war on conservatives,” Matt Hoskins, the head of the SCF, told the New York Times.

Apparently coward Mitch would rather crush Republicans then go after those on the left and Obama.

McConnell is chairman of the Republican Wing of the Democrat Party. The stupidity of his statement only ensures that Conservatives will stay home if their candidates looses in the primaries and the Democrat will win the election. I don't believe McConnell has the sense to pour piss out of a boot with the instructions on the heal.

I hope McConnell is wrong. Sadly my local long time Repub incumbent Peter Sessions beat his Tea Party rival in our recent primary. I had hopes he would be beaten but Sessions had the money and name recognition. Tea Party candidates did do fairly well in Texas, but the Repub PACs have big bucks and loud voices.
