Bevin Endorsed by Senate Conservatives Fund

Republican Matt Bevin, who is running against incumbent U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell to represent Kentucky, has received the endorsement of the Senate Conservatives Fund on Friday.

Executive director Matt Hoskins said this: "We have interviewed a lot of candidates this year and Matt Bevin is one of the very best. He's principled, passionate, and has Ted Cruz-like courage.”

The endorsement came after McConnell brokered a deal to reopen the government with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Bevin said this about the deal: “When the stakes are highest, Mitch McConnell can always be counted on to sell out conservatives.”

On the timing of the endorsement, Hoskins said it was a coincidence, although the deal didn't help McConnell endear himself to the group which was founded by former Senator Jim DeMint.

Hoskins said, “McConnell's most recent betrayal of conservatives is certainly a reason to replace him, but it's not the only reason. He has a long record of siding with Democrats and supporting liberal policies.”

Of the approximate 70,000 members of the Senate Conservatives Fund, about 90 percent supported the idea of endorsing Bevin, said Hoskins.
