LOUISVILLE, KY - The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has unanimously endorsed Matt Bevin in the Kentucky GOP primary for United States Senate.
It is time that the career professional politicians more interested in being Washington insiders step aside for new voices who will represent their constituents' desire for lower taxes and less government interference in their family affairs and their personal lives, said RLC National Chair Matt Nye.
Nye said it was a thorough process to compare the incumbent Sen. Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevin, and the RLC deliberates carefully when the incumbent is a Republican.
But in the end, it was clear that Matt Bevin, unlike the incumbent, will stand up for individual liberty, limited government and Constitutional principles. He will hold Washington accountable for its actions that impact the lives of hard-working citizens who know better than government how to manage their lives, Nye said.
Nye noted that Bevin is a successful entrepreneur who has managed financial and asset funds, including time as Vice President of Putnam Investments, and who has run a successful business that has created jobs in the private sector.
Unlike Senator McConnell, who voted to increase the debt limit nine times adding $6.7 trillion to the national debt and who voted to expand government spending, Matt Bevin assures us that he will not support an increase in the debt limit unless Congress passes a binding plan to balance the federal budget within ten years, Nye said.
Noting that Liberty Republicans are concerned about the expanse of government powers, Nye said Bevin scored well with RLC members because he has promised to protect Constitutional freedoms, roll back the Patriot Act and to limit the governments ability to engage in unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens.

HOORAY! Go Matt Bevin!
I hope we have more than a snowball’s chance of unseating that RINO of RINOs.
If Tea Party backed candidates win these primaries they better make sure they win the general election. If they lose most of them, the Tea Party will be dead. Nominating and winning the primaries are great but these candidates will need a lot of grass roots help and a large turnout by conservatives to beat the Democrat thugs.
There is no binding plan that can be placed upon congress for ten years. This statement is simply political BS. It is basically a provide me cover and I will vote for it statement. That said, I would vote for Mr. Bevin in a heart beat. However, he needs to toughen up his position. Something like ...I will not vote to raise the debt ceiling unless the Paul Mac Penny Plan is implemented at the same time. I think that is a much stronger statement. Lead man lead!
Is the RLC a sizeable organization?
I got my in-laws to vote for Rand in the previous KY Senatorial primary. Bevin over Mitch may be a bridge too far, but I shall try.
