Please VET Matt Bevin - Matt Bevin to Primary Mitch McConnell in 2014

Matt Bevin will primary Mitch McConnell for U.S. Senate in 2014. I know that Matt has been raised here on the forum before, but this thread is to fully vet him. Matt appears to be Liberty, but I am asking Daily Paul members to provide any additional insight that you could offer.

Also, if you are aware of any other Liberty candidate(s) who is planning to primary McConnell and deserves recognition/vetting, please list.

I've investigated him for several months now...

... and I've become more impressed the more research I do. The points Stonewall Jackson raises are good ones - since those things wouldn't help in a Republican primary, they indicate a sincere and independent candidate who's not afraid to speak his mind.

The fact that he is willing to take on an incumbent with plenty of money to smear him says a lot for his backbone... and even among people whose support he needs, he stands up for what he believes in.

Bevin took an immediate and early stand against intervention in Syria, and the pressure he put on McConnell in the primary is probably a large part of why McConnell eventually announced he would vote against it - otherwise, he'd have been just like John Boehner. http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/inside-politics/2013/sep...

I also know that quite a number of the original 2007 Ron Paul supporters in Kentucky - who wouldn't support just anyone - are already working hard for him. So far, he seems to have the principles I like, and if anyone could beat McConnell, it'd be someone like him, and the mood on the ground is right. And what a message that would send.. Replacing the "#1 Republican" with a liberty guy would put fear into every rep or senator who'd dare vote against liberty. Vote our way, or you'll be next!

I did!

'Matt Bevin stated that his closest similarity to Ron Paul was his foreign policy. He felt we didn't need to send money to people who hate us, and that we shouldn't be policing the world. Sounds like the complete opposite of his opponent, who by the way scored a miserable 61% on the Freedom Index.'


He voted for Constitution Party candidate Michael Peroutka in 2004 for President, this tells us he is not a lesser of two evils guy, he said “I have a Peroutka for President T-shirt from 2004 in my drawer,”


I have no doubt he would become the best US Senator in the nation if elected
