2014 Kentucky Republican Primary for the U.S. Senate
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a fifth-term senator from Kentucky. He is the minority leader in the 110th Congress and sits on the Senate Appropriations Committee. He currently is in a heated primary with challenger Matt Bevin that will be decided in the upcoming Republican Primaries on May 20th, 2014.
The Tea Party must have Mitch McConnell scared of losing his Senate seat. According to USA Today, McConnell announced that he has stockpiled $10.9 million in cash reserves for what promises to be one of the most expensive and closely watched Senate battles of the year (McConnell builds enormous war chest for Senate race, 2014). One would have to conclude McConnell’s fundraising is in response to hundreds of Tea Party activists from neighboring states coming to the Bluegrass state to assist with toppling McConnell (Tea Party Sets Its Sights on Mitch McConnell, 2014).
Must be nice to have such deep pockets from establishment donors like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in order to promote their big business agenda which most would unequivocally agree is crony capitalism (Support Mid-term Candidates that share Tea Party Values, 2013). If you don’t believe that McConnell provides kickbacks to big business campaign contributors, evidence indicates that would be an incorrect assumption. Two in particular are located in Louisville, KY; Boardpoint LLC and UPS.

The board of the New York state teachers union this weekend unanimously withdrew its support for the Common Core standards as they have been implemented — a major blow for Common Core advocates who have been touting support from teachers as proof that the standards will succeed in classrooms nationwide.
“We’ll have to be the first to say it’s failed,” said Richard Iannuzzi, president of New York State United Teachers.
