KENTUCKY (WEHT) – A former state lawmaker from eastern Kentucky says he will challenge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in next year’s Kentucky Republican primary.
One-term State Representative “C Wesley Morgan” called McConnell a “self-serving Senator” who waits to see “which way the wind is blowing” before taking a stand.
He acknowledges he’s voted for McConnell except in the 2014 GOP primary when the senator was challenged by Matt Bevin.
McConnell’s campaign says Morgan’s challenge will “end no differently” than anyone else who has challenged the Senator.
