Fort Worth, TX – The Madison Project PAC released the following statement in response to Senator Mitch McConnell’s vote for cloture to suspend the debt ceiling and grant President Obama a blank check for another year:

“Ever since Matt Bevin announced his intention to run for the U.S. Senate, Mitch McConnell has veered to the right, making sure to vote with conservatives on major issues,” said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project.  “However, he never whips against bad legislation because he has been in ‘hope yes, vote no’ mode, encouraging other members to vote for more spending while he evinced a conservative image to his voters back home.  Today, McConnell was finally forced out of the shadows because he couldn’t find enough Republicans willing to vote for such an irresponsible bill – granting Obama another blank check after he already amassed over $6.6 trillion in debt.

“Today’s vote is a perfect illustration of what Kentuckians have to look forward to if McConnell were to win reelection and no longer fear reprisal from the voters back home.  Kentucky voters need to ask themselves the following question: is this the man we want running the Senate if Republicans work hard enough to elect a GOP majority?”

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
