Tea Partiers Will Never Support McConnell

With victory for Mitch McConnell looking increasingly likely, people are starting to wonder whether Matt Bevin’s supporters will vote for McConnell in the general election.

Let me make this perfectly clear: I will not be voting for Mitch McConnell, and neither will any other self-respecting conservative.

I admit that I am not surprised that Bevin has fallen behind. He made too many mistakes —especially his attempt to cover up the whole cockfighting thing — and he simply couldn’t stand up to McConnell’s well-financed attacks.

But I will never support a candidate who refuses to speak to Ted Cruz, vows to “crush” the Tea Party, and is backed by the Washington lobbyists in the NRA (despite barely being able to hold a gun correctly). It doesn’t matter whether or not Republicans take the Senate — if he is re-elected, Mitch McConnell is going to be the same big-spending dealmaker that he has been for decades.

America is in the worst shape that it has been in since the Great Depression. Federal debt is choking our economy, and our representatives are sitting there doing nothing. Do you honestly think that electing the same old people to the same old jobs is going to change anything?
