Richard Viguerie: Kentucky Elections Results are a Vote of No Confidence in Senator McConnell

MANASSAS, Va., ( -- Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of, said the landslide victory of Rand Paul in Kentucky's Republican Primary for U.S. Senator represents a major vote of no confidence in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who strongly backed Trey Grayson.

Viguerie issued the following statement:

"If we had a parliamentary system of government, McConnell would be expected to resign.

"The elections results are a massive repudiation of McConnell and the Republican congressional leadership, which aggressively supported Grayson. Coming on the heels of Senator Robert Bennett's defeat in Utah and the Republican Senatorial Committee's previous support for Charlie Crist in Florida, it is clear that many Washington, D.C. GOP leaders are enormously out of touch with the base of the Republican Party, grassroots conservatives.

"The new conservatives who are being elected this year are different from the establishment types who went along with the big government policies of George W. Bush, Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, and others.

"The 2010 elections will be a tsunami of Biblical proportions. The voters are angry and frightened at the mess that politicians, as well as the leaders of most of America's major institutions, have made of our country.

"Recent election defeats of establishment Republicans will cause congressional Republicans to become more outspoken in their opposition to President Obama's nominees and legislative agenda. Few, if any, Republicans will risk being seen as working with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and other Democrats."

Richard A. Viguerie pioneered political direct mail and has been called "one of the creators of the modern conservative movement" (The Nation magazine) and one of the "conservatives of the century" (Washington Times). He is the author of Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause.
