McConnell Aides Allegedly Threatened Primary Challenger

Allies of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tried to push Matt Bevin (R) not to launch a primary challenge, National Review reports.

Said one adviser to Bevin: "Mitch McConnell's people reached out to Matt for several months through all different avenues trying to convince him not to run. They can pretend like they're not afraid, they can call him a nuisance, but they were desperate not to have him. Because they are scared."

He added: "First they tried to threaten him and then they tried to dangle shiny political prizes."
