I just found out some information today that enlightened me as to why Rand Paul has endorsed Mitch McConnell. McConnell's Campaign Manger, Jesse Benton, is part of the Paul family. He is married to Ron Paul's grand daughter and Rand Paul's niece. I wonder if Mitch hiring Rand's nephew-in-law was part of the deal for Rand's endorsement? This is what Benton told the Huffington Post:
"I believe in Senator McConnell and am 100 percent committed to his re-election. Being selected to lead his campaign is one of the great honors of my life and I look forward to victory in November of 2014."
Well, that answers a lot of questions.
Sort of incestuous isn’t it?
Nepotism is part of the GOPe’s and the ruling elite’s modus operandi.
People in KY will never figure it all out.
Maintaining the Oligarchy is more like it.
Hey, as Mayor Daley said,"If you want incest keep it in the family."
Since there is no longer a Ron Paul POTUS campaign, ol' Jesse has to come up with $586,616 large from somewhere to keep granddaughter Valerie happy, happy, happy ...
Why is it only conservatives are willing to overlook political philosophy when family is involved?
Old saying - birds of a feather flock together. In this case, the birds are not very good, to say the least.
Looks like Perry wants Paul for VP and Walker and Cruz will be running together.
Looks like Ms Grimes will be the next Senator. Conservatives here are NOT voting for McConnell in the general. He’s going to get stomped.
How can we save this country when the GOP is our biggest enemy??
Amazingly surrealistic, those lily livered pussies will “compromise” with Dems on *anything*, yet they declare a take no prisoners war on their own party base.
More proof that we have a uni party system. The GOP is the slightly less liberal wing of the DemocRAT Party.
I urge all of us to keep fighting, but also to prepare for the worst. Politically and economically. Liberty is dead in America.
Paul has already said he was asked to endorse McConnell before there was any opposition. As much as I’d like to see McConnell gone, I don’t think this is a big deal.
The GOP IS our biggest enemy. Not Obama. Not the Democrat MarxoFascists.
The traitors within our own ranks who are leading us into dictatorial despotism.
McConnell is running ads non-stop here trashing Bevin. MASSIVELY trashing Bevin and the Senate Conservatives Fund.
That McConnell has announced his victory in the primary here is exactly as I suspected in terms of the Cook County Machine fixing every election with national consequences.
It is amazing to me that a state that put Rand Paul into office over the RINO, would vote an Obama-enabling leader such as McConnell in the primary. It stinks like Cook County again.
Some people in Kentucky have “figured it out”. I’m one of them. It’s real simple. Rand Paul supports Mitch McConnell because he thinks Mitch McConnell will be re-elected and will, therefore, be in a good position to help him, Rand Paul, achieve his presidential ambitions. Paul obviously places his personal welfare before what’s best for the citizens of Kentucky. It’s no more complicated that that.
