Bevin spent $1 million more than Mourdock did in defeating Richard Lugar, the former senator from Indiana.
Because everybody knows a Bevin, a Bevins, a Blevins, a Belvin, a Bivens.
An August poll showed McConnell leading Bevin by an eye-popping 47 points, a gap even Sarah Palin would have a hard time closing.
Overall, 10 percent of Kentuckians had a favorable view of Bevin to 17 percent unfavorable.
The problem for Bevin is that he can only show those fangs to a few people at a time.
But from outward appearances, the tension between Bevin and Paul has also sparked friction between Paul and Benton.
But perhaps the main reason Bevin never found any traction is because McConnell was prepared and waiting for him.
Given that Benton and Team Mitch routinely refer to Bevin as a “con man,” that might not be an easy task.
Now, my guess is that Bevin knows this, and is making a cynical attack on McConnell.
In response, Bevin's campaign dismissed the report as "a rehash of an old story."
