FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin has been endorsed by Louisville Tea Party President Wendy Caswell ahead of next year's primary.
Bevin, a Louisville businessman, has been reaching out to tea party activists in hopes of winning the GOP nomination over Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
McConnell has also received tea party endorsements, including that of Sen. Rand Paul, and even has a tea party leader managing his campaign for re-election to a sixth term.
Bevin said he's grateful for the support of Caswell who leads one of the largest tea party groups in the state.
Caswell said she endorsed Bevin because she believes he will stand against wasteful government spending.
The winner of the McConnell-Bevin matchup will likely face Democratic front-runner Alison Grimes in next year's general election.
