Exclusive: New Bevin Video Targets McConnell

Kentucky GOP senate candidate Matt Bevin is out with a new video responding to Senator Mitch McConnell’s remarks in an October phone call that he would like to punch the Senate Conservatives Fund in the nose, as reported by the Washington Examiner

“Mitch McConnell talks a tough game when he’s attacking conservatives, but he seems to lose that spine when it comes to attacking liberal ideology, Obamacare, big government, and bailouts,” Bevin says. “McConnell can threaten to ‘punch’ us ‘in the nose’ all he wants, but We the People find his blustering bravado to be little more than an amusing distraction. We look forward to the time in this campaign when McConnell will actually get serious about the real issues of the day.”
