Why the GOP Wants to Snuff Out the Tea Party

If Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell has his way, the Tea Party will be totally smothered in upcoming elections.

McConnell and several other incumbent Republicans across the U.S. could lose their seats in local elections.

Though the potential of being unseated always exists, the RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) are determined to fight tooth and nail to keep a tight grip in the house so they might be able to get a better position to push their own legislation through.

Recently, McConnell spoke about the Tea Party saying, “I think we are going to crush them everywhere. I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

And yet in three major congressional districts there is an increasing amount of support for Tea Party candidates as they bid to replace the old guard Republicans.

In the state of Mississippi, Chris McDaniel is making a run for current Senator Thad Cochran’s seat. He is receiving a substantial amount of support from a few private groups, which include Freedomworks, The Madison Project, The Anti-Tax Club for Growth, and The Senate Conservatives Fund.

In McConnell’s home state of Kentucky, Freedomworks, The Madison Project, and the Senate Conservatives Fund have also thrown much of their weight behind Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin.

And one more area of opportunity exists in Kansas where Senator Pat Roberts is experiencing a significant amount of resistance from Tea Party candidate Milton Wolf.

It appears that McConnell has his work cut out for him. According to Bevin, the lead McConnell has over his challenger is shrinking.

Though McConnell is backed my many establishment Republicans in the middle Kentucky district, a rising amount of support for Bevin has not gone unnoticed.

This has caused some incumbents like McConnell to wish the Tea Party candidates would just go away.

But the Tea Party is here to say. And they’ll do everything in their power to send Mitch McConnell packing this November.
