Matt Bevin Rips McConnell's Debt Ceiling Deal

Matt Bevin is not my ideal candidate to replace McConnell in the senate, but he sure is correct in his response to the deal that McConnell has cut to end the government shutdown and increase the debt ceiling. The Hill reports:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is taking heat from Tea Party groups and his primary challenger for brokering a deal to end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling.
Matt Bevin, who is running against McConnell in the GOP primary in Kentucky, slammed him for "selling out conservatives."

"When the stakes are highest, Mitch McConnell can always be counted on to sell out conservatives," he said in a statement.

"McConnell just negotiated the GOP surrender to [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid [D-Nev.], leading the charge to give President Obama a blank check and lifting the debt ceiling once again without any spending reforms. Harry Reid has even praised McConnell for his 'cooperation,' " Bevin said.
Is Jesse Benton holding his nose?
