Matt Bevin In Town, Talks About Race Against McConnell


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- Louisville businessman Matt Bevin was in Bowling Green Sunday to give a Veterans Day tribute at the Sloan Convention Center.

Before going there, he stopped by the WBKO studio and talked about his race against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Bevin said he doesn't need to attack McConnell, but just talk about his record for people to realize who will better handle financial issues in the state.

He said Kentucky voters are ready for a choice.

"They're frankly happy to have a choice. There is no perfect candidate -- myself, him or anyone else -- but to have a healthy discussion in a primary. That's the point of primaries, actually. We want to have a primary where people can have a healthy discussion, make a choice, kick the tires and decide who they think can best carry that baton forward into the general election," Bevin said.

He said it's too soon to focus much on campaigning against Alison Lundergan Grimes, but said he wants the focus to be on issues and life experience rather than popularity and emotions.
