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.
Many political pundits are ready to crown U.S. Senator Rand Paul as a Kentucky kingmaker following the Congressional primary victory of Thomas Massie.
Paul endorsed tea party candidate Massie, who won the Fourth Congressional GOP primary yesterday. The endorsement was Paul’s first in his home state since becoming Kentucky’s junior senator in 2010.
And while Massie’s campaign benefited from a Super PAC that spent more than a half million dollars in the primary race, former GOP consultant Les Fugate says Paul deserves some credit too.
