Kentucky Senate candidate and government-assistance recipient Mathew Bevin turned up the heat at the annual “Fancy Farm” political picnic Saturday, telling incumbent Sen. Mitch McConnell to “be a man” and join efforts to block the new government health care law, according to a report in the New York Times.
Bevin, whose Bevin Brothers Manufacturing Co. in East Hampton famously accepted $200,000 in state money to help rebuild its burned-out factory, is challenging McConnell from the far right, promising to go to Washington and cut government spending. (That’s Bevin below with Democratic friends Joe Courtney and Richard Blumenthal).
“I don’t intend to run to the left of Mitch McConnell. I intend to run straight over the top of Mitch McConnell and right into the U.S. Senate.”
