SCF Open to Backing McConnell Challenger
ALEXANDRIA, VA — The following statement was made today by Matt Hoskins, Executive Director of the Senate Conservatives Fund, regarding the Republican primary election for U.S. Senate in Kentucky.
"Mitch McConnell has cut deals with President Obama to raise the debt limit, increase taxes, and fund Obamacare and we believe Republicans in Kentucky deserve a chance to elect a true conservative who will fight for their values. Kentucky Republicans would also benefit from having a more electable candidate than Mitch McConnell. He's unpopular in Kentucky and could lose the race and cost Senate Republicans the majority.
"We're open to supporting Matt Bevin's campaign and will be waiting to see if the grassroots in Kentucky unite behind him. The only way to defeat Mitch McConnell is to inspire the grassroots to rise up and fight for their freedoms. We will also be watching to see if Mitch McConnell debates the issues or if he conducts a dirty smear campaign. If McConnell doesn't respect the voters enough to defend his own record, he doesn't deserve to be in the Senate."The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) is a political action committee that helps elect conservative leaders to the U.S. Senate. SCF raises money for principled candidates who are often overlooked or opposed by the moderate Republican establishment in Washington.
