Senate Minority Follower Mitch McConnell doesn’t have enough time to lead the fight against Obamacare in the budget bill or against Obama’s Syrian escapade [until it was dead], but he evidently has time to cozy up with his K Street fundraisers:
K STREET TURNING OUT FOR MCCONNELL: More than half a dozen prominent K Streeters are hosting a fundraising dinner Sept. 26 for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell‘s reelection effort. Former Rep. Bill Paxon; Smitty Davis and Geoff Verhoff of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld; former Rep. Phil Gramm and Mike Solon of US Policy Metrics; former Rep. Susan Moliari of Google; Maria Cino of Hewlett-Packard; and former Rep. Lauch Faircloth are all listed as hosts on the invite. Cost to attend: $5,200 for hosts; $2,600 to co-host; and $1,000 to attend. [Politico Influence]
It’s no surprise that Mitch McConnell fails to lead on any contentious and important issues for conservatives. The special interests of some of these K Street groups are often at odds with the conservative values of Kentucky. Naturally, McConnell wouldn’t want to risk losing all those millions in pay-for-play cash. These companies all want amnesty for illegal aliens and corporate welfare. Instead, McConnell uses the millions in special interest campaign money he gets from K Street to smear his conservative opponent.
Kentuckians are tired of K Street insiders running our country and subverting our Republican form of government. That is why McConnell is having trouble defending his seat from a liberal Democrat in a state Republicans carried by 23 points last year.
