The Tea Party Demands that Mitch McConnell Drop Out Or Else Alison Grimes Will Win

There’s trouble brewing in Kentucky for Republican Senator Mitch McConnell. The Tea Party Frankenstein the GOP used to try to kill Obamacare in 2010 is coming back to bite their Senate Minority Leader in the behind.

The United Kentucky Tea Party called on McConnell to drop out of the race so Matt Bevin, the Tea Party candidate, can rally the base, according to Tom Howell Jr. at the Washington Times.

The Washington Times reported, “The tea party group cited Mr. McConnell’s dramatic vote last week to extend the nation’s debt limit and polling that suggests he could lose to the eventual Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, in the general election.”

It got worse — the Tea Party group said, “Senator McConnell’s recent vote with (Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid to hand President Obama a blank check for the next year has further degraded his support in Kentucky.”

Yes, Kentucky, where the Republican voters already think that Mitch McConnell is too friendly with Obama, so it’s not a stretch really for the Tea Party to demand that Mitch McConnell step down before he loses to Alison Grimes.

But the Tea Party is wrong about why he is at risk of losing to Alison Grimes. While he may be upsetting the base, it’s obvious that the Republican base does whatever Fox News tells them to do, so when Fox tells them to vote for McConnell, they will. The problem is that not everyone in Kentucky is sold on McConnell’s failure to have a jobs plan for going on 30 years. He even refused to extend unemployment benefits all because his number one mission is to obstruct President Obama, rather than help his people. Mitch is not exactly a man of the people, and the people of Kentucky seem to be growing weary of him. They really don’t like Mitch McConnell.

Alison Lundergan Grimes is leading McConnell or tied in recent polls. McConnell lost the female vote by refusing to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act and dismissing pay equity as not a real issue.

And now the Tea Party is on his back, taunting him with his possible loss to a woman.

And they say the Tea Party never did anything for America. I beg to differ.
