FreedomWorks Endorses Mitch McConnell Challenger Matt Bevin

FreedomWorks, the high-profile tea party group, has endorsed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) conservative challenger Matt Bevin in the Kentucky Senate race.

"Now more than ever, we need strong fiscal conservatives who will fight to cut spending on the front lines, not the sidelines," FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said in a statement on Tuesday. "Matt Bevin is a great upgrade for Kentuckians who are serious about transparency, fiscal responsibility and accountability in government."

Bevin has already been endorsed by other outside conservative groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund and The Madison Project (which has also opened get out the vote offices in Kentucky to boost the chances of defeating McConnell), but former FreedomWorks leader Dick Armey came under fire for the group's dismal one-in-four win ratio after spending more than $40 million in the 2012 election cycle.

McConnell is still ahead, buts dropped over 20 points in the last couple of months.

No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

-President Trump 8/14/17
