RINO Mitch McConnell To Tea Party Challengers: “We Are Going To Crush Them Everywhere”

RINO Mitch McConnell


In a New York Times interview published this past Saturday, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stated he believed that Tea Party challengers in the upcoming elections this year for open Senate seats, "are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country." McConnell further stated that as far as any Tea Party challengers to the establishment party, "we are going to crush them everywhere."

It is exactly this kind of thinking that has made the establishment wing of the Republican party so unpopular amongst base conservatives. It is also why several million Republicans did not even vote in the previous elections and partly why Barack Obama was able to win a second term as president. Much of the base does not see any difference between Democrats or Republicans, but does see a difference in Senators like Ted Cruz who, while still a Republican, more strongly identifies with the Tea Party movement.

I have no idea if any Tea Party candidates will win Senate seats this time around in 2014, but with the attitude of Mitch McConnell and John McCain acting like the Tea Party is some kind of pariah, that will just insure they  grow stronger every election cycle and eventually see to it that the establishment RINOs are on their way out.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) believes that incumbent Republicans won’t have a problem holding their seats in the 2014 elections.

“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” McConnell said about Tea Party challengers in a New York Times interview published Saturday. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

McConnell faces a primary challenge from the right. The Senate Conservatives Fund, which backs Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin, believes the candidate has a chance of defeating McConnell the the primary.

“Mitch McConnell is clearly in trouble in this primary or he wouldn’t be attacking Matt Bevin and declaring war on conservatives,” Matt Hoskins, the head of the SCF, told the New York Times
