It’s over: Matt Bevin is the Republican nominee for Kentucky Governor.
As Hot Air notes: James Comer took the high road and did not make life difficult after the recanvass. So they are all one big, happy fleet now in the Kentucky Republican party. No, really: "Happy Together" from Steven Reese on Vimeo. So no hard feelings, and time to encourage Jack Conway to explore his options in the private sector. Moe Lane PS: Matt Bevin | Read More »
Update on Kentucky-GOV GOP Primary: James Comer takes the high road.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I guessed wrong on this one. I expected a bitter rear-guard action. Would that I was always wrong in such a pleasant fashion.

Matt Bevin Wins
[Revised given the polling at the end] I did not endorse Matt Bevin for the Kentucky Governor’s race. I endorsed Hal Heiner a month ago when it seemed all was lost for Bevin and the third man in the race, James Comer, was worth beating. Matt Bevin ran against what the media had caricatured him as and he cleaned up. He ran a clean race | Read More »

The Strategy of Conservative Insurgency
Right now, there are three kinds of conservative insurgent, and they are best explained through the lens of the Kentucky Senate primary. The first is the depressed conservative insurgent. This person is so troubled by Matt Bevin’s loss that they cannot currently be made to feel better. They had pitted all their hopes in taking down the biggest fish the Establishment had to offer, and | Read More »
McConnell for Senate
I genuinely like and rooted for Matt Bevin. But his campaign made an early mistake that got amplified through the course of the campaign. He needed to give the reason “why him” instead of “why not McConnell.” Instead, he got beaten in the definition game, outspent, and overrun. Matt Bevin will not be the Republican nominee in Kentucky. As much as I wish he would | Read More »
Kentucky Republican Primary Endorsements
Since there are no challengers to any of the five of six Republican members of the House from Kentucky and since Michael Mcfarlane will challenge the only Democrat- John Yarmuth- in the Third Congressional District, the only primary drama in the state and perhaps the country is the primary battle for the Republican-held seat of Mitch McConnell. There are two decent websites this writer consults | Read More »
Can Conservatives believe Mitch McConnell’s gun rights promise?
You know it must be getting close to election season—and that his chance of winning isn’t looking too good—when Mitch McConnell breaks out with his rendition of “(What a) Wonderful World” (my apologies to the great Sam Cooke). ♬ Don’t know much about the GOP Don’t know much about the TEA Party Don’t know how a promise kept might look Don’t know much about the | Read More »
Jahan Wilcox, RNC Spokesman, Attacks Republican Candidate as “Fraud”
Jahan Wilcox is the rapid response director at the RNC. He’s charged with responding quickly to attack Democrats and rebut Democrat attacks on the GOP. Last night, Jahan Wilcox responded quickly to Thom Tillis’s victory in North Carolina by declaring that next would be to defeat Matt Bevin, the Republican candidate in Kentucky, who Wilcox called a “fraud.” Holy crap!

Time for New Leadership
30 years ago, a man ran for the Senate because his opponent kept claiming to be for spending cuts while raising spending. His opponent kept claiming to be a conservative, while letting big government grow, even when he was the majority and could stop it. Maybe that candidate needs to be reminded of his own words.
To Change America
Stories continue to trickle out about coming Republican betrayals. Once primaries are over, Republicans are going to push amnesty. Once primaries are over, Republicans are going to give up efforts to repeal Obamacare. They’ll tinker instead. The only way to change the direction of the country is to change the direction of the GOP. The only way to change the direction of the GOP is | Read More »
The Challengers Under Attack
The truth may hurt, but is not mean, as my friend Andrew Breitbart would say. The truth is the major challengers to incumbent Republican Senators — Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas, and Chris McDaniel in Mississippi — are behind. This is not to say they cannot win. I believe they can. But, this is to say that for them to win, their | Read More »
Matt Bevin: Mitch McConnell Is A Bully With A Thirty-Year ‘Machiavellian Death-Grip’
Last week, FreedomWorks hosted #FreePAC Kentucky, a grassroots rally and gathering that featured excellent speakers and a fired up base. One of the most popular speakers was Senate candidate and Mitch McConnell primary-foe Matt Bevin. I had the chance to speak with him after the even for a few quick questions. “For thirty years, nobody has wanted to run against this guy. For thirty years | Read More »
VIDEO: Matt Bevin Gets Grassroots And Glenn Beck FIRED UP At #FreePAC
Yesterday in Louisville, Kentucky, FreedomWorks hosted FreePAC, a gathering of conservative grassroots activists. The libertarian-leaning, strongly independent crowd were active and engaged throughout the very successful meeting. One of the speakers who truly inspired the crowd was the man who’s name was on signs all over the auditorium: Kentucky Senate candidate and Mitch McConnell side-thorn Matt Bevin. Here is speech: “There are many people that | Read More »
