    Mitch McConnell has stiff opposition in the Republican Primary this spring. Matt Biven has pulled within ten points of McConnell. Matt is a business man, and an honest, hard working Christian. He is a strong supporter of the Constitution. He does not waiver on abortion or the 2nd Amendment. He is not a Democrat with a suit on.

    Kentucky has sent McConnell to the Senate for thirty years. One day he is criticizing the Democrats, and the next he is French kissing them. He has no sense of direction or moral compass. This guy is the consummate politician. He takes off more days than he works, which, in a sense, is a blessing to the nation.

    Anyway, check out Matt. He is honest, down to earth, and is willing to stand up for what he believes.

    If Mitch does get past the primary, he has a very strong Democrat opponent. Some polls have her ahead. It would make no difference if she won, as she is more conservative than Mitch McConnell.

    Matt sounds like a good guy,but Mitch will win the Republican primary and then go on to trounce Grimes. Remember,Mitch has the support of Rand Paul!

    You see, the difference between you and me is that I live in Kentucky, and for that matter in the United States. You do not have a clue. You would not have a clue if you lived here. Since you have never lifted one finger to serve this nation, best thing for you to do is super glue your lips together. It seems odd to me that you now reside in a nation that stands for everything that Christianity and our Constitution does not. Maybe you should consider a long term stay. Instead of making meaningless posts on BB, maybe you should put them on strips of paper and put them in fortune cookies. You know, some extra money on the side.

    My house is in order. I suggest you stick to your fortune cookies, and maybe make a few trips to the Chinese police to turn in a Christian or someone who loves freedom and liberty.

    Your remarks are sinful in the extreme. Another false apology from you won't change your posting pattern though. If you only realized how entirely devoid of the truth your comments are. Do you even have the capacity to know what it's like to witness here? Can you summon the insight that it would be pure joy for me to be the instrument of someone's salvation?

    Your paltry thoughts on Mitch would fade into their proper insignificance were you here with a heart for Christ.

    From the article:
    Bevin is a tea party-backed businessman

    Well, this should be interesting. Another state where the endorsed Republican isn't conservative enough for the Tea Partiers. In this instance I hope he beats McConnell.

    SN, I would almost bet you that McConnell and Bevin agree on 99% of the issues, but that they diverge in strategies to address them.

    Then they wouldn't agree on the issues. Strategies are everything regarding the issues. For example, the Great Pretender likes his idiotic, bankrupting ACA. Ben Carson, for example, would leave private health insurance companies alone and encourage, by making them 100% tax deductible, healthcare savings accounts. Both want to improve healthcare. But do they agree? Not even close.

    Fascinating. A 1% margin of error between the two! ;-)

    d-CON, FYI, I like a lot of things Carson is on record for saying, a lot; but's it's early, he's yet to come under the scrutiny he's bound for from the right and the left.

    IMO, 2nd amendment stance and foreign policy are two areas that I'm anxious to find out more about him. I'd particularly like to know who he would surround himself with as concerns foreign policy.

    Well, maybe it's more like 95%.

    When I say they would agree on the issues I am talking about:

    Repealing ACA
    Pro-life
    Cutting taxes
    Marriage between one man/one woman
    Strong military
    Sanctions on Iran
    Building Keystone pipeline
    Drilling for more oil, not curtailing
    Reining in the EPA
    Cut spending, balance the budget

    but how to go about these things might show differences.

    Correction,you mean,with your adjustment --a 5% margin of difference between them --not 95%!

    You're right, InTheLight, Mitch and Bevin would agree on all these issues. However, Mitch will talk pro-life and marriage between one man/one woman all day long, but he won't spend a single ounce of political capital making these things happen. The only hill Mitch is willing to die on is the one that gets him reelected. I am sick and tired of Republicans who give lip service to conservative social causes but never do anything to fight for us. I don't know if Bevin is any different but I have to hope so.

    If the Republicans do win a Senate majority, we'd better be praying now that it is with the Bevins' of the GOP, and not the McConnells'. The country is just barely better off with the GOP establishment in place than it is with Reid's socialists there instead.

    Personally, it's hard for me to decide whether McConnell or Jesse Helms is the worst senator ever. P.S. I was born in KY.

    Hmm...I said this way back in Jan. Mitch beat Bevin 60% to 36% in the Primary.

    There's kind of a satisfaction in saying :"I told you so." :tongue3:

    Kentuckians are not anxious to give up that seniority in the Senate. IMO, McConnell is a shoo-in.
