Matt Bevin is running for the United States Senate in Kentucky. The businessman and father of nine is committed to the pro-life cause. Several of his children were adopted. In 2003, he lost a daughter in a car wreck. The Southern Theological Seminarys Bevin Center for Missions Moblization is named for Matt Bevins daughter.
Matt Bevin is a good man. Right now he is being subjected to withering attacks by Republicans who have long profited from the status quo. Bevin, like a number of other candidates this year, is challenging an incumbent Republican Senator one who has been in Washington since 1985.
If Republicans want to change Washington, D.C., we must change our own team. We must change the team that heralded passing TARP as a great day for the United States Senate. We must change the team that grew government itself while claiming to be in favor of small government.
Matt Bevin understands the odds and stakes.
Whenever people tell me that Im crazy, its when Im on to something, he said. Because most people are fearful, because most people are timid, the field is not nearly as crowded. Many of those people frankly are more qualified, more capable, more experienced to succeed. But they dont have the intestinal fortitude. They literally dont have the stomach for it, and thats good because it makes room for people like me.
If we want to change the course of this country, we must change the course of our party, and we must do that by changing the men and women whove gotten used to Washington. Theyve gotten used to the status quo and profit from it.
