McConnell's conservative record, influence make him logical choice

By JIM TIDWELL Paducah

EDITOR:

It's difficult to understand the logic that motivates a few Republicans to "ditch" Mitch McConnell for Matt Bevin as promoted in TV ads and in a letter to the editor in the Sun on March 11. That's like promoting political suicide.

Consider this: Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the U.S. Senate and the most influential conservatives' representative in our nation and our state. Over the years he has fought tirelessly and effectively for Kentucky's interests while also working as a true patriot for the interests of the nation as a whole. For example, Sen. McConnell continues to be a champion for Kentucky coal and our local uranium enrichment plant.

Nationally he has effectively led Congress in the fight to restrain the lawless, godless, Marxist Obama administration from usurping the economy and the moral fabric of our great country. We need Sen. McConnell to continue this fight until he can be made the Senate majority leader in November, when fed-up voters can give control of the Senate to the Republican Party.

Opposing Sen. McConnell in the May Republican primary is the unknown upstart Matt Bevin, who apparently makes his livelihood outside of Kentucky and has no experience in navigating the intricate political waters of either Frankfort or Washington. In these perilous times, both at home and abroad, we cannot risk turning one of the most important jobs in the nation over to an amateur while discarding a patriotic, conservative professional who has the desire and ability to guide our fortunes through the next six years.

Much the same can be said for the Democrat nominee for Senate that McConnell will face in the November general election, Alison Lundergan Grimes. Ms. Grimes' credentials can't hold a candle to Mitch McConnell's ability and achievements.

I urge true conservatives to avoid wasting precious time touting rank amateurs while we already have Mitch McConnell, the best person for the job, already in his rightful place as our leader in the Senate.
