Mitch McConnell on Bevin’s tight primary win, impeachment value for GOP, Trump vs Pelosi, and vaping teens

After a surprisingly close primary win for Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, I asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell if he would offer support for Bevin’s re-election in the November general election.

McConnell and Bevin have a complicated relationship stemming back to Bevin’s campaign to unseat McConnell in 2014. The McConnell team labeled their opponent Bailout Bevin, calling him a con man and liar.

Today on WHAS Radio, Senator McConnell promised to fully support Bevin’s re-election. Kentucky’s senior senator also touted attorney general candidate Daniel Cameron, a former McConnell staffer. Kentucky has not had a Republican attorney general since the 1940s.

As for the ongoing acrimony between President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, here are both sides of the story. First from the Speaker of the House:

Trump aide Kellyanne Conway said Pelosi’s account of the failed presidential meeting was untrue, that Trump calmly left the room and Pelosi told Conway “I don’t speak to staff.”
