SCF invests big in Mitch McConnell’s challenger

The Senate Conservatives Fund has invested nearly $1 million in the candidacy of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s GOP primary opponent, the group said Friday morning.

SCF spent about $535,000 promoting the candidacy of Matt Bevin in Kentucky and passed along another $450,000 to the tea party candidate, nearly half of the group’s candidate investment last year. Bevin will need all the help he can get in taking on McConnell, who had nearly $10 million on hand as of October.

Run by a former aide to former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), the organization spent more than $2 million donating to or promoting five candidates last year, three of whom are challenging incumbent Republican senators. SCF’s second-largest investment went to Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who received about $516,000 in favor of his challenge to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.).

SCF spent about $600,000 combined on the candidacies of three other Republicans: Rob Maness in Louisiana, Ben Sasse in Nebraska and Milton Wolf in Kansas, a distant cousin of President Barack Obama who is taking on incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas).

I’m afraid money spent on Manness in LA is a real waste, but I would vote for him if Cassidy collapses, which is possible.
