Fort Worth, TX – The Madison Project PAC, the first conservative PAC to endorse Ted Cruz (R-TX), unveiled today three unique billboards that expose Senator Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) destructive record in Kentucky.  The billboards address the issues of bailouts, debt and Obamacare with duplicates of each billboard totaling six in all. They are located in Clay County, Laurel County, Madison County, Pulaski County and Whitley County.

“These billboards are part of the Madison Project’s broader effort to move past the platitudes and engage in a long-form discussion with Kentucky voters about McConnell’s true record,” said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project.  “McConnell likes to tout his supposed clout and power, but after 29 years in Washington hard-working Americans are left with the same culture of higher taxes, more debt, special interest kickbacks and bailouts.  McConnell’s work, with Vice President Joe Biden in 2011 and Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) last year, to raise the debt ceiling has charted a course towards the permanent growth of government.   The harmful effects of the ‘McConnell debt ceiling plan’ speak louder than his carefully written speeches.

“Worst of all, McConnell has completely sabotaged the only effort to halt Obamacare funding before the law becomes impossible to repeal.  He made it clear to Democrats that not only will he continue to fund Obamacare through budget bills and debt ceiling increases, but he will also punish conservatives who attempt to do so. McConnell talks a good game about repealing Obamacare, suggesting that all we have to do to get rid of the law is to make him Majority Leader.  However, his dogmatic commitment   never to  fight the President on a budget bill to force outcome confrontation over Obamacare means that the earliest opportunity to repeal the law is 2017.  By then, it will be too late.  As long as McConnell is in power, Obamacare implementation will never be disrupted and premiums will continue to skyrocket.

“It is clear that another six years of Mitch McConnell as leader will perpetuate the status quo supported by his special interest money-bundlers.  The only way to make the party more effective is by electing conservative U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin.  Bevin strongly opposes big government and the special interests of Washington, and unlike McConnell, he will actually fight for the best interests of the people of Kentucky.”

The Madison Project endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin in July of 2013. The full endorsement can be read here.

The Madison Project supports and raises money for conservative candidates that have demonstrated a commitment to full-spectrum conservatism. The Madison Project website can be found at
