Senate Conservatives Fund endorses McConnell’s primary challenger, Glenn Beck interviews him yesterday…

Matt Bevin, the conservative alternative to Mitch McConnell, has just been endorsed by the Senate Conservatives fund:

THE HILL – Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) primary challenger got a boost Friday with the endorsement of a prominent national conservative group, the Senate Conservatives Fund.

The endorsement of Matt Bevin comes just days after the fund blasted McConnell for his role in working toward a deal to end the government shutdown, charging in an email to supporters Tuesday that he was “leading the surrender” of the GOP.

In the endorsement, Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) Executive Director Matt Hoskins conceded that Bevin has an uphill climb in unseating McConnell, but said the group is “confident” he can win.

“Matt Bevin is a true conservative who will fight to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are destroying our country. He is not afraid to stand up to the establishment and he will do what it takes to stop Obamacare,” Hoskins said.

He added: “We know that winning this primary won’t be easy. Mitch McConnell has the support of the entire Washington establishment and he will do anything to hold on to power. But if people in Kentucky and all across the country rise up and demand something better, we’re confident Matt Bevin can win this race.”

Here’s an interview he did with Glenn Beck yesterday:

  • Glad to see they did! We endorsed him weeks ago! http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/2013/10/endorsements.html

    • Sentinel

      You guys ROCK! I keep your endorsements close to my wallet. WE WILL PERSEVERE!!!

      • YAY!! Thank you Sentinel! We’re working on a couple more, hopefully have some new ones added by the beginning of next week! Thank you!

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          Have conservatives considered looking at/approaching alumni who were champion debaters at the college featured in this film for candidates?

          http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1090754/

          • I don’t know Galatians- this is the first I’ve seen, I’ve been so busy with so much I haven’t been able to see things like this.

            • Galatiansch2vs20

              I noticed after I mentioned this to someone else here on Right Scoop, another person posted the name of that college on Right Scoop. It seems it might be something worth checking.

              • I’ve heard of Patrick Henry College. If I’m not mistaken, it’s one of the very few along with Hillsdale that is totally private funded- no government money. Some home school groups talk about PH College a lot.

                • PuritanD71

                  Yes, PHC is one of the premier colleges in regard to preparation for debate. They have won moot court many times and have had made a movie about one of those times.

        • Sentinel

          Awesome! Thanks!

      • Sorry to spam Sentinel, but in case you have time and want to read, one of my latest Is up today : http://politichicks.tv/column/tear-wall/

  • Sentinel

    I’ll support him financially and any other way I can. McConnell, Graham, and Collins (and Chambliss since I’m in GA) are my primary focus in this upcoming election in the Senate. They MUST be voted out!!!!!

    • curlylouis19

      Don’t forget about Lamar Alexander up here in Tennessee.He is another one who needs to go.

      • Sentinel

        I haven’t my friend… He’s on my list too. Thanks for the reminder.

    • DarkKnight2016

      I am pulling for Bevin but McConnell is a force in Kentucky republican politics, Graham is more likely to be defeated, I am supporting Nancy Mace. There is no challenger to Collins in the primary, just a Democrat who is a former for the Maine ACLU.

      Saxby Chambliss (R-Georgia), retiring

      GOP Primary Candidates are
      Jack Kingston
      http://www.jackkingston.org/
      Phil Gingrey
      http://www.gingrey.com/
      Paul Broun (Ron Paul Endorsed)
      http://paulbroun.com/
      Karen Handel (Sarah Palin Endorsed her for Governor in 2010)

      • Sentinel

        Thank you for this information! Bevin MUST win – but I know it will be hard. I’ll send money and support. For Graham, also consider Lee Bright. Duckie recommends him and I trust her judgment. I don’t know Nancy Mace… I’ll have to check her out (figuratively and analytically speaking).
        I keep confusing if it’s Chambliss or Isakson in GA (I need to pay closer attention). BOTH of them need to go! I’m very sweet on Karen Handel (she should have been our Governor) and I’m interested in Paul Broun – both seem like decent candidates to me right now. As we get closer, I’ll pick the one who’s most conservative and genuine. Thanks again!

        • DarkKnight2016

          I have considered all 3 candidates and I have declared my support for Nancy Mace. For Georgia I am supporting Karen handel to take Sen. Chambliss’ seat. A former GA Secretary of State, she has experience running a state-wide election which will come in handy when going up against Michele Nunn who has statewide name recognition because of her father former Sen. Sam Nunn (D). I understand that Paul Broun is a good conservative but I have a GUT feeling (sometimes it’s a gut feeling about someone) that he may end up saying something wrong like Todd Akin. Former Rep. Ron Paul (R) has endorsed Broun, and if I remember correctly Sarah Palin endorsed Handel for Governor in 2010.

          Nancy Mace: http://nancymace.org/

          • Sentinel

            Thanks for the link… At first glance, she seems like someone I could support. I’ll dig deeper and go from there. I wish her tax plan was more defined (flat or Fair).
            Karen Handel is my current 1st choice for Georgia. I voted for her for Governor… Most recently though, I’ve heard Paul Broun speak – especially at the Sep 10 Tea Party Patriots function at Washington. I like him and he seems quite popular around here. But someone else implied he was a RINO in Tea Party’s clothing. Maybe that’s why he’s popular? I’ll dig deeper… thanks for the info.

  • Swamp Fox

    Hopefully after the election is over I will be able to report that Mitch is working as a tour guide on the Bourbon Trail here in our great Commonwealth. It is a job well suited for him.

  • Freedomswatch

    Let’s roll! I donated to Matt Bevin’s campaign. If you can even afford a dollar, every penny helps. Senate campaigns cost a lot and if you don’t have the cash to spare (as I know many don’t) then support his candidacy online, tell your friends, this is not just about Kentucky this is about new leadership in the Senate and saving America.

    • bahamianhoosier

      I gave him 20 and times tough for me but better of the country is on the line! Do and donate all you can!

      • Freedomswatch

        Thanks bahamianhoosier. We are all in this together. We will not be dispirited. We have only just begun to fight. Keep up the good work. I will too.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    I know that if I was in Kentucky I would vote for a donkey before I vote for this nerd that has been in Washington for 30 years, it just doesnt seem reasonable or understandable to me why a red state like this would keep sending this imbecile to Washington. What a disgrace this McConnel is.

    • Longiron

      Another reason Ran has to pull his endorsement of McConnell?

      • PhillyCon

        I would be shocked if he did. Seriously.

    • PhillyCon

      Well, why do you think he got that dam for KY? LOL.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Lol

  • DarkKnight2016

    I see they have also endorsed Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel who announced his candidacy for the seat currently held by Thad Cochran. Cochran has been in the Senate since 1978 and hasn’t announced if he will retire or seek re-election.

  • Carmen P

    Quick question. If Bevin wins, who becomes minority leader?

    If Rs take the Senate, I assume that same person becomes majority leader?

    • curlylouis19

      The person I think should take that role is Rand Paul

      • deTocqueville1

        Cruz by far! I do not know where Paul stands on Amnesty and he was wishy washy at best on the Cruz, Lee approach.

        • marketcomp

          Rand Paul campaigned for amnesty in New Hampshire while also voting against it in the Senate. Of course for his run at the Presidency.

          • keyesforpres

            He voted ‘yes’ on cloture. If enough had voted ‘no’ on cloture, amnesty would have gone down in flames.
            He voted ‘no’ on the final vote because he knew it was going to pass…..just like his daddy would do with earmarks that he tucked into spending bills.

        • DarkKnight2016

          Well then I guess this is good that Obama has chosen his nominee for Secretary of Homeland Security. Sen. Paul is on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. We will see what questions he asks during the confirmation hearing. From what I hear the DHS Nominee doesn’t have much experience with immigration.

          • deTocqueville1

            We shall se whether the questions are more form or more substance!

      • marketcomp

        Yeah, that’s a question that needs to be considered.

      • Amjean

        I agree.

      • Longiron

        Rand needs to have the conservatives put the heat on him to pull his endorsement of McConnell. If not Rand is not going anywhere?

      • keyesforpres

        Don’t trust Rand. He supports mass amnesty.

    • DarkKnight2016

      If the Republicans take the Senate then they would be choosing the Majority Leader, if they don’t then they will choose a Minority Leader. The leaders are chosen by their conference and all I can tell from history is that the Whip is usually 2nd in line to succeed the Republican Leader if the Leader loses re-election or steps down from leadership. If the GOP takes the Senate, McConnell loses re-election and John Cornyn of Texas wins his re-election next year then it may be that John Cornyn will be the Majority Leader.

      • Carmen P

        Thank you for the detailed reply. THIS is why I ask: I don’t see how John Cornyn would be a better “leader” than McConnell.

        We have GOT to get better people into leadership. Then the RINOs can either follow or leave and join the Dems.

        • Longiron

          Does the members of the Senate vote. The Whip is not a sure thing if he does not have the votes??? I think Coryn would be a tough sell if he wins in TX. Someone has to primary this RINO SOB.

          • DarkKnight2016

            I just posted about that above, all of the leadership is voted into their roles by fellow Senators.

        • DarkKnight2016

          Well the Leadership (Leader, Whip, Conference Chair, Conference Vice Chair, Policy Committee Chair, NRSC Chairman) is chosen by the Senators in their conference so you basically have to look at each senator for which side they are on.

          Just so other know if they don’t; ALL current Republican Leadership in the Senate:

          Minority Leader: Mitch McConnell (KY)
          Minority Whip: John Cornyn (TX)
          GOP Conference Chair: John Thune (SD)
          GOP Policy Committee Chair: John Barrasso (WY)
          NRSC Chairman: Jerry Moran (KS)
          GOP Conference Vice-Chair: Roy Blunt (MO)

          Note: “NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee) is the national organization solely devoted to electing Republicans to the U.S. Senate. The NRSC provides invaluable support and assistance to current and prospective Republican U.S. Senate candidates in the areas of budget planning, election law compliance, fundraising, communications tools and messaging, research and strategy.”
          The Vice Chairman for Finance is Sen. Rob Portman (OH) and the Vice Chairman for Grassroots Outreach is Sen. Ted Cruz (TX)

          • suedixon

            I got a call from this bunch the other night wanting me to listen to some spill asking for money to help them take back the senate. I responded to the caller, you must be kidding. After you caved, you expect us to give money? I said no thanks. and the caller had the nerve to ask me if I wanted our names removed from their mailing/phone lists.

          • PhillyCon

            Thanks, DK.

            • DarkKnight2016

              Anytime.

    • deTocqueville1

      Seniority generally but by ballot.

  • Let the GOP civil war begin … the better for the rebels to win it sooner.

    • deTocqueville1

      The second American Revolution.

  • deTocqueville1

    He sounds good. has he been thoroughly vetted? I do not know just asking.

    • We vetted and endorsed him a few weeks ago deTocqueville. http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/2013/10/endorsements.html

      • deTocqueville1

        Excellent.

      • marketcomp

        My only concern is his positions on common core. I heard him in an interview and his answer was that he agrees that we should have standards but was not sure about the current process now. That was a bit waffling. But he is Constitutional and that’s certainly a step in the right direction.

        • I’ve noticed that with a few candidates and it’s a good point. Right now though my mind is going in 50 different directions- about to endorse someone, and other things. I can’t remember who I’ve talked to about what right now. When we have questions we do try and contact the candidates to ask. Most cases they have answered thoroughly.
          Thanks marketfriend!

          • keyesforpres

            We should make them sign an agreement that if they win and change their tune, they can and will be promptly removed from office.

    • DarkKnight2016

      Senate Conservatives Fund thoroughly vets the candidates they endorse. Bevin has been has been in the Kentucky race for months now and he is just being endorsed. SCF also doesn’t endorse incumbents.

      • deTocqueville1

        I know he has but that means nothing, think Johnson and Ayotte among others. Thanks for the info. So you assume he has been which is good.

      • keyesforpres

        So he’s not a RUBE?

    • theresaaa

      Could he be worse than McConnell ?

  • froggy19510

    Senate Conservatives Fund endorses McConnell’s primary challenger, Glenn Beck interviews him yesterday…
    Interviews him yesterday??? Come on! Where did you people learn to write?
    How could Beck interviews him yesterday??? I see people writing in the past tense and it just drives me crazy! I don’t think that you are required to learn grammar to be a writer any more. Please take an English lesson or two.

    • Press Watchusa

      Slow down please – we all get a little excited

      wright – you mean write
      and
      grammer – you mean grammAr
      and
      keep the stones in your pocket!
      (unless you were joking of course)

      • froggy19510

        Ok. You can make fun of my spelling and grammAr if you want, but then I don’t make my living by writing or public speaking. The people who wrote this column do. I see this mistake alot and it has become ridiculous and I decided to speak out about it. I think that people who make their living by writing or public speaking should have a better grasp on the English language than an eight grade school student.
        I guess my point comes down to whether or not someone takes enough pride in their career to be professional, or is just too lazy to do their job.

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          I took a writing/e-mailing course at a job I had. They felt that people should write at a sixth grade level because people tend not to take the time to focus and read as they did in days of old.
          I too would prefer interviewed to interviews, however from what you typed, I would say the writer was trying to announce it as news and therefore was using present tense words: endorses, interviews. With -ed, they might have thought that would have made it appear old already.

          • froggy19510

            “therefore was using present tense”

            They weren’t using present tense. They were using past tense.
            I guess I’ll get over it, but it seems like people who are supposed to inform us should do a better job of using the English language. Thanks for your point I understand “newseese” but it should be used in news papers and pulp fiction. Well that concludes my rant for now.8^)

            • Galatiansch2vs20

              Interviews and endorses are present tense verbs, which is what I was referring to. ‘Yesterday’ tells us the word ‘interviewed’, a past tense verb, would have been the preferrable word to use rather than the present tense verb to be grammatically correct.
              I assume you are referring to Right Scoop? Scoop being in the name is the sort of word that screams news to me. I’m guessing it was the person who provides this forum for us that you were speaking of and if so, it looks like he has addressed your concerns with editing.

              • froggy19510

                Ok. I understand “newsees” but it is not only used in “journalism” but it is used every where in entertainment on TV and radio. The headline could have read “Senate Conservatives Fund endorses McConnell’s primary challenger, Glenn Beck interviewed him yesterday…” would have still caught my eye and I would have read it. Maybe I am just making a mountian out of a mole hill. 8)

        • keyesforpres

          Has it occurred to you that it was just a mistake? Maybe the writer was thinking “interviewed”, but typed “interviews”?

          • froggy19510

            No. It is a pattern. Just listen to FOX news and other news services and you will often hear anchors speaking in the past tense.

            • Press Watchusa

              I am with you – I read at least three articles per week from “MAJOR” sources that are incorrect – I think all the editors are brain dead
              The best is when they screw up the closed captioning with obvious mistakes

            • crosshr

              We are in a melting pot here in the country. About, who knows how many type of English dialect we dealt with daily. So, in order to communicate with a diversified culture, we must adapt, adjust and be very flexible with all senses we may have.Otherwise, we miss the message.

              • froggy19510

                Yes this nation is a melting pot. However it is not up to the nation to change for you. it is up to you to assimilate into this nation, learn the language and customs, and become a productive member of society.

                • crosshr

                  relax and loosen up sister, too uptight. you have no crew who are all the folks here you think you are better than. Give others a chance to grow. What you do to others is exactly what you will face.I almost mistaken you with Carl Rove,for your elitist mentality.You are a waste of time and a distraction from the real issue of the day.

                • froggy19510

                  In the first place I am not your sister, if I was I would be at the corner working for my dailey fix. Secondly I am not up tight. It was you who chose to insulte me about what I said. What does now crew mean? Are you trying to say clue? I want others to grow to be great Americans and fit in. Carl Rove? I wouldn’t say that to you. If I am a waste of time why are you wasting your time arguing with me?See ya chump.

                • crosshr

                  Yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn !!!!!!!!!,
                  sorry, realize everuthing about you are too ugly to be a sister.

                  My sisters serve their Lord, the Loving God Jesus !Many of them are here on Scoop. Unlike you, you suck up the air here with your irritable sick attitude.
                  Worry about your damn self first to fit in before you worry about someone else.
                  Even if I were a chump, I won’t even care to look at your ugly face if you were the only creeping being exist.Your attitude stink, to put it mildly.

                • froggy19510

                  Sorry about whatI said abpot your sister. Good bye.

        • Press Watchusa

          Not making fun- chill – I make misteaks too!
          BUT
          The biggest mistake was me hoping that the GOP would wake up – I guess not.

          • froggy19510

            Sorry. I didn’t think you were. I was just being snarky.
            You are right about the GOP. I think that if we keep those people in office we are not going to have our freedoms for much longer. We need to repeal the 16th and 17th amendments to the US Constitution and get the power back to the states.

      • froggy19510

        Ok. I changed it. I apologize to anyone that I may have offended for my egregious errors in spelling.8^)

        • crosshr

          It’s not just your spelling, more like your lifted nose tip attitude.
          Don’t make that mistake thinking you are perfect and above the person that make an error in grammar or spelling.That’s unhealthy.

          Look for the message of the sentence.

          Also, what the hell is 8^ ?

          • froggy19510

            I never said I was perfect. My point was about journalism in general. I was saying that if someone makes their living using the english language they should be able to present their ideas in an educated manor. If you would have read my post closely
            you would have seen that. I didn’t have a “nose lifted up attitude”. The 8^) is a smiley face to show levity not arrogance.
            So you can keep your snarky attitude to your self and learn to use proper english so people can understand what you are talking about. :-).

    • deTocqueville1

      That’s write not wright! 😉

      • froggy19510

        Thanks. I am not the worlds best speller. I’ll try to do better next time.8^)

    • Modern vernacular. It’s how language changes over time.

      For example, when we were kids, you’re sentence, “I see people writing in the past tense and it just drives me crazy!” Would have caused the question, “Where?” because you left out the word ‘When,’ and a comma.

      • froggy19510

        Thanks for the critique. Next? 8^)

        • Heh. I didn’t see all the others before piling on. You’re doing fine, though!

          • froggy19510

            No problem. I don’t mind. Usualy I have some troll to argue with, so it’s not too bad when I get some constructive criticism.
            8^)

  • Press Watchusa

    I hope all RINOs get kicked out

    (A third party – IMHO – would guarantee losses by splitting the votes and help the liberals)

    Then a clear message would be sent to the RINOs

    (but what do I know)

    • deTocqueville1

      Losses of what though? Of losers like McConnell?

      • Press Watchusa

        No losses of the “good guys” because of lost votes

    I’m happy that McConnell is being challenged. The people of that State deserve better, just as the people of Ohio need to replace Boehner. This gentleman is challenging Boehner:

    Ill definitely donate to this dude. I want to do much more than oust these filth from office; but until the day in the trenches comes, Ill settle on unseating a jerkoff with monetary means.

    These guys (McConnell etc) act like they are entitled to their seat. Reminds me of why we fought the British.

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    I sent McConnell a message on “cave day” via his website that though I live in NJ, I’ll be sending money to Matt Bevin. It was short and to the point, and I truly hope he received thousands of similar messages. I’m guessing from the comments here, if he hasn’t gotten the message by now, he will very soon.

    • WinMissouri

      Me too! and made a donation to Bevin.

  • jdbaird

    He said McConnell and Obama are “BFF’s” haha…I just sent him $100.

    • Press Watchusa

      Is it true that McConnell is expecting Obama’s baby?
      EWWWW!

      • crosshr

        ewww !
        :-))

        I would imagine McConnell’s probably hit menopause by now, but who knows? IVF maybe?

          You guys are sick. But I mean that in a nice way.

    This is a no-brainer…RINO, establishment hack McConnell MUST go.
    Don’t screw this up, Kentucky.

    It is past time to send a message to these insiders. Call it term limits.

    Why is Rand Paul endorsing RINO McConnell? He has endorsed conservative Dr. Greg Brannon of NC, who is running for demonrat Kay Hagen’s senate seat. Go to his website and read his views on today’s issues.

    • deTocqueville1

      He has been fence straddling, to put it kindly. 2016!

      • palintologist

        Rand Paul has always struck me as a guy who was hedging his bets. I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him.

        • Lynn Roland

          AMEN

      • Freedomswatch

        Totally agree.

    • OneThinDime

      Pay to play? What did Rand Paul get in return, the rolodex for 2016 potus?

    http://gregbrannon.com/ Please support Greg Brannon for NC senator, a true conservative. Go to his website and decide for yourself. The RINO establishment will be supporting Tom Tillis, the present state house speaker.

    • DarkKnight2016

      I have supported him since he entered. Tillis has baggage.

    Misfit McConnell is a JERK and a MANIPULATIVE CONMAN….he has no ethics, no soul, no character and no conviction. He is Reid’s little girl or bend over boy and is the EMBODIEMENT of the GOP Establishment. When you consider how he, McLame, Thune, Shamnasty, Burr, Cornyn have backstabbed Conservatives it is more than TIME to say Muhalo to Misfit McConnell….give the little creep an all expense retirement to Hedes where McConnell belongs with the rest of his elk!!

  • bluerose75

    Rand is a COWARD on his own State….he endorsed that backstabbing little punk out of OBLIGATION..Rand that will not be FORGOTTEN….and he endorses the challenger in NC….that is the very essence of a COWARD…..how easy Rand to endorse someone in another state??? Where are the gonads Rand? Seems to me little fence player always sound tough but behind the scenes…has some real Creme like a Donut…..in other words…A WAFFLER not to be trusted!

      Obligation? I don’t think it’s obligation. Rand Paul isn’t far from McConnell. Next up from Rand Paul is to approve the radical DHS cabinet appointment.

    Off topic, but the Libertarian candidate in the VA Gubernatorial race is siphoning off 9-10 points that could be going to Cucinelli, giving McAuliffe a 7 point advantage.

    THIS is why I disagree with the 3rd party mentality. It’s automatic wins for the (D) every time.

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      I don’t think all who are Libertarians would vote for Republicans if a Libertarian were not on the ticket.

      • Carmen P

        That’s why I said “could” — but I guarantee you for any (L) interested in voting, given a choice between the two, maybe 50% of them would vote (R). The others might stay home. That’s a 5 point gain for Cucinelli, in a race that is tight. It could mean the difference between a small margin of victory or a small margin of defeat.

        If Cucinelli were McCain-esque, I wouldn’t care. But Cucinelli is a solid Conservative who fought Obamacare all the way to SCOTUS. This is not the type of (R) we ought to be glib about.

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          It would be nice to get a feel of Libertarians, what is their average demographic, given the choice- voting republican, democrat, independent or staying home if their candidate weren’t on the ballot. It’s sad that the democrat’s ahead.

    • OneThinDime

      Libertarians are on step from Progressives. They are part of the Progressives’ strategy to destroy the Republican party and are entering races to divide votes and running as Republicans then voting their true 100% Democrat nature.
