Primary Politics: Can the Grassroots Defeat the GOP Establishment in 2014?

Interesting developments: Matt Bevin is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary.

Why Won’t Democrats Answer Questions About Kentucky Eavesdropping Scandal?

The minute I mentioned the scandal involving Progress Kentucky’s secret recording of Mitch McConnell, the lady on the phone at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said, “I’ll put you through to his voicemail” — meaning DSCC spokesman Justin Barasky, who didn’t return my call.
