Its bad enough that Mitch McConnell is a terrible leader in the Senate who regularly gets outmaneuvered by Harry Reid, but hes also a lousy Senate candidate. In fact, the only reason the GOP is risking a Senate seat in a state Mitt Romney won by 22 points is because McConnell is so unpopular. Despite the fact that Matt Bevin has low name recognition, hes already out-polling McConnell in a head-to-head race against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.
In a state where McConnell has almost universal name recognition, those are Todd Akinesque numbers. If Mitch McConnell stepped aside, Bevin would win the race in a walk. If Bevin stepped aside, a McConnell vs. Grimes race would essentially still be a coin flip. When Jim Bunnings numbers were in the toilet, Mitch McConnell told him it was a waste of time to run and convinced him to step aside. Apparently no one has the chops to do the same thing to Mitch McConnell, despite the fact that even his own campaign manager said he was sort of holding my nose to work for him. When your own campaign manager doesnt get excited about your race, its time to call it a career.
