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.

We know how this ends.  Remember McCain/Hayworth.  McConnell has 10 million reasons why he will be re-elected.  Freedomworks is broke.

“I’m sure the purity-for-profit business model is tempting and lucrative, but it does nothing to seriously advance conservative principles and hold the Democrats accountable,” - Brian Walsh, GOP strategist, former spokesman for the NRSC

Thus, McConnell campaign spokeswoman Allison Moore had this to say about Wednesday’s FreedomWorks endorsement: “A group that used to pride itself on grass-roots empowerment has endorsed a self-funding New England millionaire who takes taxpayer bailouts for his uninsured business, says he is a constitutionalist when he knows little about the Constitution and falsely claims he attended MIT.”

McConnell ads already label his challenger “Bailout Bevin.” You can bet every Kentucky voter will hear that phrase in coming months – multiple times.
