McConnell to Play Major Role in GOP Primaries

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is reportedly going to be much more involved in Republican primaries for the upcoming midterms than he has been in the past in an effort to make sure that the party wins back control of the U.S. Senate.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, McConnell said that the goal is not about alienating or promoting any certain type of Republican but rather to make sure that the candidate can win in November and will not hurt the party in races in other states.

“That may or may not involve trying to affect the outcome of the primaries,” McConnell noted, saying the key to the Republican Party winning back the U.S. Senate hinges on “getting candidates who can actually win in November.”

“I personally don’t care what kind of Republican they are, what kind of lane they consider themselves in,” McConnell said. “What I care about is electability.”
