FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gun Owners of America has endorsed Louisville businessman Matt Bevin in his Republican primary race against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.

The group, in the endorsement announced Thursday, said Bevin is "a leader who is willing to uncompromisingly fight for our liberties."

Bevin called it an honor to have the endorsement from the organization that works to protect the constitutional rights of gun owners.

Bevin, making his first political run, is taking on a Republican powerhouse in McConnell -- Kentucky's longest-ever serving U.S. senator. He's seeking election to a sixth term in office.

The winner of the matchup will likely face Democratic front-runner Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky's incumbent secretary of state, in next fall's general election.
