Skip to comments.McConnell beats Tea Party challenge to win primary
Posted on 05/20/2014 8:05:45 PM PDT by Wisconsinlady
At present, every poll has McConnells race against Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentuckys secretary of state, as a dead heat with Election Day just six months away.
Grimes also easily won her Tuesday primary.
Her race with McConnell also is expected to be the most expensive congressional race this election cycle, as Republicans try to win a net six seats to take control of the upper chamber. If that happened, McConnell would replace Nevada's Democratic Sen. Harry Reid as the Senate majority leader.

Elections don’t always work out as they should!
When Soros has an ownership interest in the electronic voting machine manufacturer this shouldn’t surprise anyone. They have just about gotten rid of paper voting everywhere now so the only place where the count is kept is in digital format along with the digital voting evidence. How does that make you feel now?
And in doing so, he trashed and “crushed” the same voters he will
need to beat Grimes. Good luck with that. Especially since he won his
last election by only 6%.
Guess the only recourse now is to vote for the democRAT.
Bummer, but I think they see the movement and maybe it makes them a little nervous.
Well, at my age, I do give up but hope that the upcoming generation learns better and are better leaders.
Waiting for the awakening.
I agree, be honest, have no problems in your past, and be truthful when running for office. Damn, that would eliminate about 95% of candidates! What does that tell us - maybe that the wrong candidates are running for office?
When we finally get down to farmers and machinists running then we can get down to facts. We have long given in to those who are running for political office as if they are decent folks instead of questioning them and looking into their past...geez. When we will we ever learn, if you expect the media to do that then you are as ignorant as they are.
We pick the dumbest conservatives ever....every dang time. It is no wonder we lose. We picked an idiot who thought Cockfighting was a good idea.....in today’s world, where is he?????
The TeaParty needs to do more in vetting and supporting GOP opponents to RINOS than merely picking/supporting any GOPer who is opposing a sitting RINO. Being against a RINO is not enough to win on. There has to be more substance there.
Kentucky voters deserve Grimer for senate at this point. Fools.
Bobby Jindal was right. The stupid party accurately describes not only the establishment, but most primary voters too.
McConnell is Dick Lugar. The problem is, he has more power to screw conservatives at every turn. The man is poison.
Now should we elect Grimes or should we re-elect Mitch?
Not sure, but I would not be surprised if McConnell loses us this seat.
I newcomer spending only about $4 million with help gets 35% vs a career man that barely gets above 60%. It’s a start.
Eleven points more and he’s gone.
I don’t plan on wasting my gas. But if I live in Kaintuck I’d waste it to go vote for anyone but Mitch.
It has to be said, Bevin outperformed the polls by quite a wide margin. I’d like to see the man in Congress.
I don’t want them to stop speaking their minds but vetting the interview might be smart. Sure, these aren’t consultant picked off-the-rack white teethed robots.
But I’ll take one of them over any RINO anytime. Just look at the crap that comes out of the mouths of GOPe vetted candidates. It’s mumbling incoherence.
The road is long.
Lugar headed the GOP Senate Campaign Committee in 1984 when McC was first elected. He took a special interest in the candidate from his neighboring state. TN though replaced Howard Baker with algore in the same election. And Jennings Randolph defeated John Raese in WV.
I hear you, but it’s almost worth voting for the Lefty to see the RINO rat sink.
I hadn’t heard about the cock-fighting incident. Will you fill me in on that please?
“We picked an idiot who thought Cockfighting was a good idea
Cockfighting like amnesty is a big draw for the illegal alien vote. Im sure some double agent told him he would win the hispanic vote there.
“I hadnt heard about the cock-fighting incident. Will you fill me in on that please?”
Unlike what it may sound it is not a homosexual jousting sport. Its chicken fighting popularized in the Mexican and cuban communities.
If people don’t go out and vote in the general ‘cause their guy got beat in the primary then they’re effin’ losers...
They don’t have to tread lightly, buit in general, if they say something stupid, they need to be ready to put some beat-down on libtardian pundits afterwards. It’s not the stupidity that kills them, it’s the Ah, errr, ahh, duh... afterwards.
Maybe I should send money to the Rat running against him?
No, I’m saying be smart enough to anticipate the traps the ‘Rats and the media will set for you and don’t say stupid things that let you fall into them. Otherwise you’ll spend the rest of your campaign answering questions about “legitimate rape” and witchcraft. Just be ready with reasonable answers and don’t let them draw you into an ambush. Campaign Strategy 101: don’t say or do stupid things. Why is that seemingly so hard for conservatives to understand?
Over two million residents did not vote at all for anyone.
What does that say about b_tch McConnell’s ability to draw votes?
Can they elect a “write-in” candidate?
“I dont want them to stop speaking their minds but vetting the interview might be smart. Sure, these arent consultant picked off-the-rack white teethed robots. But Ill take one of them over any RINO anytime. Just look at the crap that comes out of the mouths of GOPe vetted candidates. Its mumbling incoherence.”
The Republican Establishment/Dims are ready to jump on any slip-up by a conservative, and scream “Look, look at what he/she said, did, or didn’t say!!!! Nevermind that our guy has bankrupted the country, look at that stupid statement the conservative made!!! That disqualifies him/her. You have to elect the Republican Establishment/Dim candidate, who will finish off the country, because we don’t want someone who makes a slip-up even if they will vote to put the country back on the right track.”
Even low-information voters should not be that stupid.
Good point. The voters need to do their homework before nominating candidates.
you can do it individually
Mitch won, so I think we should unite to defeat the Dem. Yes, he might not be 100% conservative, but do we think Grimes would be conservative?
