MAYSVILLE U.S. Sen. Rand Pauls Northern Kentucky field representative is leaving to become the Northern Kentucky director of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevins campaign.
Bernie Kunkel announced his plans Saturday while addressing Republicans at the annual Buffalo Trace Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner in Maysville. And he said hes wants to help Bevin in the GOP primary, in part, because U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell has been in Washington too long.
I have to help the best man in the upcoming U.S. Senate race and that man is Matt Bevin. It is time for a change, Kunkel said. I beg you to study the voting record of our current senator and decide for yourself.
Kunkel will spearhead Bevins Northern Kentucky operation by coordinating the placing of signs, going door to door, scheduling town hall meetings as well as fundraisers.
People look at 30 years as enough for Senator Mitch McConnell, said Kunkel. I think not a a lot of people are happy with his leadership.

a lot of folks would love to see old mitch pack his bags
In most cases leaving one crew for another is a bad sign but in this case it sounds like good strategery.
People look at 30 years as enough for Senator Mitch McConnell,
A lot of damage can be done in 30 years
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
You have to believe that Paul’s OK with this..he’s gonna get questions about it...and no operative would knowingly put his boss in a difficult position without getting it OK’d first.
I agree. I just wish Rand Paul would stick to his tea party principles and choose Matt Bevin. In 2010 Rand Paul was Matt Bevin.
If there is anyone in the US Senate, besides Reid, Schumer, and all other Rats and RINOs, who need to go, it’s McConnell.
This is great news, but, I wonder what Rand Paul thinks about this. I mean; Rand Paul has endorsed Mitch McConnell hasn’t he? Someone correct me if I’m wrong.
“This is great news, but, I wonder what Rand Paul thinks about this. I mean; Rand Paul has endorsed Mitch McConnell hasnt he? Someone correct me if Im wrong.”
No, you’re right. It’s likely there was some kind of tradeoff if Paul runs for President.
However, if McConnell’s a defeated minority leader, his endorsement or lack thereof wouldn’t make any difference at that point, so Paul may be, behind the scenes, helping to take down a major establishment figure.
I was thinking along those same lines. Thanks for the comment.
