Skip to comments.Conservative group hits McConnell in new TV ad
Posted on 10/29/2013 8:54:53 AM PDT by xzins
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is getting hit from both sides in the aftermath of the government shutdown -- and the latest volley comes from conservatives in the Kentucky contest.
The Senate Conservatives Fund, which endorsed McConnells GOP challenger Matt Bevin earlier this month, is launching its first TV ad since officially wading into the race, and it charges that McConnell helped Barack Obama and Harry Reid fund Obamacare.
Conservatives asked Mitch McConnell to lead the fight against Obamacare. He didn't listen, the 30-second ad says. Now Kentucky families are paying the price. Premiums up, lost coverage, even lost jobs. When Kentucky needed Mitch McConnell the most, he let us down. Now hes asking us to give him six more years in Washington?

The $330,000 ad buy from the groups super PAC arm, Senate Conservatives Action, will run statewide on broadcast and cable stations from Oct. 30 through Nov. 12. Its the second SCF ad targeting McConnell, founded by now-Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint. Before the shutdown, they had launched another TV ad urging McConnell not to back down from defunding Obamacare.

The 3 billion dollar sell out wasn’t a good decision either
Time for Kentucky to ditch Mitch.
Where’s the ads on Boner??? Linda Graham??? Cornyn???
Two words: Kentucky Kick-back
His Senate strategeries have failed, are failing and doomed to fail in the future.
I'd say if he isn't primaried out, he needs to go down in the General. As encouragement for the others.
I think Boehner doesn’t have a credible resourced opponent yet. Plus, I think Jim DeMint is focused on the Senate.
I am fine with him going down in the general if there is a better choice.
sure going to be fun watching some old guard assclowns who have been there forever get the hook this primary season.
Throw em ALL out.
McConnell has 17 MILLION to spend on his war against Conservatives while insisting HE is the only Conservative in KY.
The ONLY fight against the Left he will muster - is in the General election to ensure he retains his seat agains the Democrat.
Then he will go back to being the stealth saboteur of Conservatives and the protector of the Ruling Class he always was.

The project commenced in 1995 and is scheduled for completion in 2020. The actual construction site appears to be on the Indiana shore.
That being said, it could be a major boondoggle/overreach by the Army Corpse of Engineers given the amount of time and treasure spent on it.
"Eight months later, SS5 remains perched on the shoreline along with partially built shells, evidence of a failure that haunts taxpayers and ripples across the nations inland waterway system.
"A Post-Dispatch review of thousands of pages of documents and more than two dozen interviews reveal a project plagued by cost overruns, delays and engineering challenges stemming largely from the corps stubborn insistence on an innovative construction method that met its match in the unruly Ohio River.
" A project that should have been completed years ago has quadrupled in cost because of management failures for which the Corps of Engineers has yet to be held accountable."
Funding it as part of the passage of a "clean" bill IS outrageous.
I’m tire of McConnell carrying water for the Dhimms and then trying to cut conservatives off at the knees.
McConnell reportedly told K Street lobbyists that he is ready to do battle with conservatives/Tea Partiers.
Bring it on, jerk.
they are forming coalitions to attack Cruz and Lee because they dared to defy the GOPe.
I will gladly work to bury the GOP before I’ll attack conservatives. I am no longer a believer in their party. I’ll not side with anything but individual conservatives within it. They’ve lost me as far as my being part of a “party” is concerned. Until they become a conservative party.
Thanks for the info. That is certainly news to most of us. It is a project like that Boston tunnel that kept swallowing more and more federal dollars.
mcconnell... price to buy his vote=THREE BILLION DOLLARS! He will vote for far less but this is his all time record!
Time for Kentucky to ditch Mitch.
Fry the Kentucky chicken
What was the reason given for not using the usual method? A right of way problem?
Eunuch Boner needs to face a military veteran with spine and guts who can tell it like it is.
If it makes you feel beter I a minister have used foul language and one of my favorites starts with s and ends with t and has a hi in the middle. My bride continues to ask if I would use that in a Sunday School lesson. I slipped once and had to applogiize. Ooppps
It’s good that Rove will have to spend money to counter the ads being run by real conservatives.
That was a interesting post. I live where there are a lot of dams (WA state) but I have never taken the time to learn how they were actually built. Makes sense to divert the river if you are not in a densely populated area.
Obviously in this case, their technology failed to deliver.
Had this ever been done before? If not, the Ohio is a mighty big river to play with. God, why does the corps keep digging these money pits?
