On Friday, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorsed Matt Bevin, who is challenging Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in this May's Kentucky Republican primary.
Jenny Beth Martin, President of Tea Party Patriots and its Citizen Fund Super PAC, told the Washington Times, "Senator McConnell worked with the Obama Administration to raise taxes, has voted to raise the debt ceiling ten times, and has added pork barrel projects to further his own career instead of the needs of the American people."
According to Ms. Martin, "That's just not the kind of Senator Kentucky needs, and that's another reason we are joining Tea Party members in the Bluegrass state in supporting Matt Bevin."
Bevin was endorsed earlier by the Senate Conservative Fund and the Madison Project. The influential Club for Growth, however, has not yet weighed in on the race.
Senator McConnell was endorsed by Kentucky's junior senator, Rand Paul (R-KY), before Bevin entered the race in July. Paul has stood by his endorsement of McConnell despite Bevin's endorsement by the United Kentucky Tea Party, a loose confederation of the major Tea Parties within the state.
Bevin was delighted to receive the endorsement of one of the largest Tea Party organizations in the country. "I'm excited and grateful to receive the endorsement of the Tea Party Patriots. This influential group has led the charge in fighting for limited government and for increasing opportunities for all our citizens to pursue the American Dream," he said in a statement emailed to Breitbart News Monday.
"Kentucky," Bevin predicted, "is going to see a grassroots effort the likes of which no amount of lobbyist money or lies from the establishment can counter." He added that "[t]he professional political class will try to stop us, but We the People will win this race on May 20."
