In Louisville, Kentucky today, Freedomworks hosted #FreePAC, a gathering of right and center right grassroots activists. The keynote speaker was Glenn Beck, who had strong words for Mitch McConnell and other Republican party leaders.
Glenn had the crowd on their feet several times, and, like Matt Kibbe’s and Matt Bevin’s speeches before his, the biggest applause came when attacking the Republican party leadership, or what many grassroots attendees refer to as “the party establishment.”
The party leadership is facing strong resistance from much of the base in this mid-term. It remains to be seen how that will affect election results and the party in general.
