Matt Bevin’s Improbable Recovery

Against all odds, McConnell’s former primary foe is emerging as the least damaged of the top Republican candidates in Kentucky’s gubernatorial primary.

Senate Republican primary candidate Matt Bevin (L) campaigns in a restaurant in Sligo, Kentucky, on April 23, 2014. Bevin, an unknown businessman, opposes Mitch McConnell, the Republican minority leader , with 30 years in the US Senate. Bevin launched an incendiary campaign on behalf of the Tea Party, to eject the McConnell, 72, in the Republican Senate primary to be held in May.
