More than a dozen tea party groups in Kentucky are combining forces to try to unseat Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014, saying he has not fought hard enough for their causes.
The groups, under the umbrella of The United Tea Party of Kentucky, argue that McConnell has paid "lip service" to their cause and that he his too moderate for their causes.
"We're looking right now at anybody that has a possibility of retiring Senator McConnell," said John T. Kemper III, the group's spokesman told USAToday.
Thus far, the Louisville Tea Party has declined to join in, believing that there isn't a strong enough candidate to oust McConnell. The only candidate to express interest is Kemper, a former candidate for state auditor.
