“Mudsling Mitch” and “Bailout Bevin” were supposed to break bread together at the Elizabethtown Rotary Club Tuesday.
Matt Bevin bailed. He told the AP he had a “scheduling conflict,” the Lexington Herald-Leader reports.
Sen. Mitch McConnell is expected to be a no-show at Saturday’s Kentucky state GOP Lincoln Day Dinner in Lexington. He says he’ll have to miss the Republican unity feed because he’ll be too busy doing the people’s business in Washington, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports.
Presumably Bevin will be in the chow line Saturday. If Thursday’s re-canvass goes as expected, the tea party hero will be the official GOP gubernatorial standard bearer.
Meanwhile, pity the poor Bluegrass State Republicans – “Torn Between Two Lovers” – Mitch and Matt.
