McConnell Gains Support of Another Tea Party Leader
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has gained another tea party endorsement with Sen. Marco Rubio declaring his support earlier this week.
Rubio stated his support for McConnell’s re-election on FOX News Sunday. McConnell and his GOP primary challenger Matt Bevin have been competing for tea party endorsements.
Rubio says McConnell has led Senate Republicans well. His endorsement comes after one of another high-profile tea party Republican, Sen. Rand Paul.
The winner of the McConnell-Bevin matchup will likely face Democratic front-runner Alison Lundergan Grimes in the general election.
