Mitch McConnell is reportedly getting a challenge from the right in his 2014 reelection campaign, with Kentucky Businessman Matt Bevin planning to announce that he’s running against McConnell in the Republican primary.
[Bevin], an investment executive based in Louisville, has previously floated the prospect of a primary bid against McConnell. Now, two sources say Bevin has booked ads in the Louisville market; a Republican source said “Matt Bevin for Senate” has also begun reserving time in Bowling Green as well.
From the Huffington Post:
According to the Huffington Post, Bevin has already been meeting with local tea party activists and the leader of the Louisville Tea Party.
In a statement, McConnell’s campaign manager Jesse Benton dismissed a possible run by Bevin, calling him “an East Coast con man.”
“While it is sad to see someone who claims to be a Republican doing Barack Obama’s bidding, his campaign is nothing more than a nuisance,” Benton said in a statement. “Mitch McConnell will never waiver in his fight for our Kentucky values.”
McConnell’s Democratic opponent is Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, whose run prompted a bizarre auto-tuned web video released by the McConnell campaign.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
