Madison Project PAC Endorses Matt Bevin For Senate In Kentucky

Madison Project PAC Endorses Matt Bevin for Senate in Kentucky

Madison Project Chairman Jim Ryun: “The only way to change the lackluster leadership in the Republican Party is to replace the career politicians who lead the party. Matt Bevin is brave enough to storm the castle of the GOP Establishment and challenge the sitting minority leader, and we are proud to stand with him and with millions of conservatives who feel disenfranchised by unprincipled GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell.”

Washington, DC – The Madison Project PAC announced today that it is endorsing Louisville businessman Matt Bevin for Senate against Senator Mitch McConnell in next year’s Republican primary for Senate.

“Earlier this year, Senator Rand Paul illustrated the problem with the GOP establishment by noting that they have grown stale and moss-covered,” said Daniel Horowitz of the Madison Project. “After 28 years in the Senate and over 10 years in leadership, Senator Mitch McConnell has become the embodiment of stale moss-covered leadership. It’s not just his votes for Democrat proposals, such as open borders, bailouts, fiscal cliff tax hikes, debt limit increases, green energy stimulus, and funding for Obamacare, it is the fact that McConnell has refused to use his leadership role to fight for conservatives. On so many major legislative battles important to conservatives, McConnell has refused to fight and has remained ambiguous about his own position until he felt a clear signal from his political weather vane. His behavior during the amnesty fight is a consummate example of McConnell following from behind instead of leading from the front.

Moreover, there is widespread fear among conservatives in the state that McConnell will lose the seat in the general election. It is an embarrassment that in a state Romney carried by 23 points with 116 of 120 counties, McConnell needs to run another $20 million scorched-earth campaign to eke out a narrow victory. With control of the Senate at stake, there is no reason we should waste tens of millions bailing out a failed unprincipled senator. Mitch McConnell should heed the advice he gave to Jim Bunning in 2009 and put the best interests of the party and conservatives ahead of his waning career.”

“We are proud to endorse Matt Bevin, a bold change in the direction of principled conservatism,” said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project. “Matt has lived the American Dream, coming from virtually nothing to grow multiple businesses and create jobs. As a family man, philanthropist, and successful entrepreneur, Bevin is the antithesis of a career politician. He won’t need to put his finger in the wind to gauge the political winds in order to fight for his conservative beliefs. He understands that Washington corrupts even the best of people. That’s why he has pledged to serve no longer than two terms. Bevin is not only committed to voting with conservatives, he will give voice to conservatives in the Commonwealth of Kentucky by leading the charge for limited government along with other leaders in the Senate like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.”

The official endorsement along with the complete conservative case against Senator McConnell can be viewed here and also at www.DumpMcConnell.com

The Madison Project supports and raises money for conservative candidates that have demonstrated a commitment to full-spectrum conservatism. The Madison Project website can be found at http://madisonproject.com/

Matt Bevin is the real deal, and American conservatives should unite behind him to resurrect the values that McConnell and the establishment have killed in the GOP. I spoke with Drew Ryun a couple of days ago, and he had a twinkle in his eye when sharing about Bevin. His PAC now, other additional and similarily powerful conservative backers soon to follow!

I agree with you and I am voting for Matt Bevin.

On Thursday I received a political flyer in the mail. Nice and glossy, (expensive), in it the McConnell campaign was trashing Bevin.

Here are the things it was accusing him of and called him a Fraud and a Con-man.

1. Sued by hundreds of people for selling defective products then bankrupted his company to dodge creditors.

2. No history of volunteering for TEA Party groups or conservative causes.

3. Donates money to liberal Democratic Candidates.

4. Took a Government bailout for his company in Connecticut

5. Failure to pay taxes resulted in being named in the “Top ten delinquents owing money to East Hampton”

Well you know something McConnell and your smarmy campaign if you fought even a quarter as hard against Harry Reid and the Democrats as you do against a Conservative opponent to your position we wouldn’t be having this ‘conversation’ because you would have been doing your job instead of ‘going along to get along’ with the Democrats in D.C.

McConnell is just like John McCain - fights to the death against a conservative but tip toes through the tulips when it comes to challenging a Democrat. These wimpy, RINOs make me sick.

I don't think the Dems have a chance no matter who the candidate is. But McConnell is part of the problem. He is a man who has never earned a dime in salary that didn't come from the taxpayers. Bevin is someone who has made his career in the private sector. It is time that we got some leadership in Congress that aren't professional politicians.

No you can't. But elect enough conservatives to the Senate and reduce him to irrelevance and his head would probably explode. That would accomplish the same thing.

Voters in the great state of Kentaucky....Mitch McConnell must go!!! He is naught but a RINO “Weak Sister”!!! Please give Kentucky Senator Rand Paul someone he can work with. When Mitch McConnell signs, endorses and promotes the Lee/Cruz defund Obamacare petition among Republican Senators, (www.dontfundobamacare.com) I’ll maybe reconsider him!!! Right now he is useless!!!!

SUPPORT THE LEE/CRUZ anti-Obamacare petition. Sign and endorse today!!! (www.dontfundobamacare.com)

Unfortunately Rand Paul himself has endorsed McConnell, and said he would not support a Tea Party primary challenge to McConnell. Very disappointing, I would be interested to know what voters of Kentucky think of that, and how that will affect Bevin's chances.

Too bad Rand is endorsing Mitchie for re-election.

Yes! If Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee really want to increase the size of their caucus in the Senate, then endorsing the likes of Mitch McConnell doesn't seem the way to go about it. I sure hope Ted Cruz doesn't do the same thing by endorsing his senior Senator John Cornyn here in Texas, we need to get rid of Cornyn as bad as we need to get rid of McConnell

People in KY will stick with McC. All they know is the incumbent.

You are right; at least the Kentuckians have a choice, but the Texans are so determined to keep Cornyn that no one will challenge him in the primary and probably not much general election challenge either.

McC started out as the county judge in Louisville; what was he before that? People in KY think he is tremendous, but they don’t know why.

There is probably some kind of ordinance in Cincinnati that says one can’t challenge an incumbent of his own party in a primary. Not really, but it might as well be.

Which Carter is that; is it the TX congressman; I thought he was conservative if it is.

Yep. Kudos to Kentucky...for at least having options against Milquetoast Mitch.

I'm afraid you're right about Texans and Cornball. I'm praying that at least one strong conservative steps up to challenge him...and that Ted Cruz will/can endorse them over Cornyn.

AZ can recall McPain, but Harry Reid won’t recognize the recall. Harry needs McPain to keep above the 60-vote line.

Does anyone know anything about Dwayne Stovall from Cleveland, TX who is currently trying to collect enough signatures to get on the primary ballot against Cornyn? Is he likely to be a serious challenger? He has a facebook page and apparently is speaking at Tea Party meetings around the state but hasn't been in this area yet.

Rand Paul has endorsed Mitch McConnell. Bevin must be a threat to Paul’s “conservative” credentials. It reminds me of his old men kissing Romney ass during the primaries.

The least conservative man in the GOP primary and Ron Paul basically endorsed him. Then he ran down to the House and voted for sodomy in the Armed Forces. Look for the same “conservative” votes as long as Rand Paul is in DC.

He did the usual government jobs - congressional staffer and Deputy Assistant Attorney General under Ford. He has never earned a dollar in the private sector that I'm aware of.

AZ can recall McPain, but Harry Reid won’t recognize the recall.

Neither will the Constitution. Other than losing an election, the only way a sitting senator or congressman can be removed from office is for the Senate or House to expel them.

Cleveland, TX? Republican primary voters will think he moved down from Cleveland, OH, and will hence stick with Cornball.

Recall is not in the Constitution, but Congress could recognize a state’s recall if it wished. I know they say federal law trumps anything the states do that is not specifically in the Constitution. Of course, Congress can do all kinds of things not in the Constitution.

Don’t know where Cleveland, TX is, guess we should be glad he’s not from Paris, TX. Primary voters might think he was French. Actually, his Facebook picture would clear that up right away!
