Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell is in trouble. Kentucky Tea Party activists want him out and could spoil his re-election bid. That's got McConnell lashing out, claiming his opponents have been infiltrated by, gasp, Liberals.
In a campaign fund-raising email Monday, McConnell's campaign
manager, Jesse Benton, said every conservative in the state needs to be
aware of "an important development."
He said a report by Politico, a political journalism news group,
"confirmed that (President) Barack Obama's Democratic allies are
attempting to infiltrate conservative organizations across Kentucky to
encourage and fund opposition to Senator Mitch McConnell."
said liberals know that McConnell "has stood side-by-side with
conservatives in Kentucky and they need to manufacture a movement
against him to get attention to the race."
If nothing else it suggests that Democratic mischief-makers could be in for a lot of fun in tight Republican primaries in the run-up to the 2014 mid-term elections.
