It looks like Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell is going to get a Republican primary challenger after all.
Louisville businessman Matt Bevin plans to kick off his campaign with eight stops across the Bluegrass state, starting Wednesday. He’s expected to campaign against McConnell from the right.
According to a media advisory, he plans to announce his intentions Wednesday for the Senate race at the Kentucky State Capitol in Frankfort. He’ll hold subsequent events in Newport and Louisville.
Bevin has hinted at a possible run for months. In March, he told TheDaily Caller of a possible Senate run: “If I can be a part of the dialogue that leads to a reversal of the downward economic spiral that faces us as a state and as a nation, then I am willing to do so.”
