McConnell Has 20 Consultants

The Hotline: "Lest anyone feared Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell wasn't taking his re-election bid seriously, his latest campaign finance report shows he's fully staffed up. In fact, McConnell looks like he's making his own personal effort to reduce the unemployment rate among political consultants."

"McConnell's campaign made payments to 20 different consulting firms over the last three months, the filings show, including to nine different fundraisers, three separate media firms and two Republican web consulting outfits. He's hired some of the biggest Republican names in the business -- Harris Media, Metzner Media, FLS Connect and Engage LLC, to name a few -- in advance of what could be a difficult re-election bid against Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes."
