Matt Bevin, the owner of the Bevin Brothers Bell factory in East Hampton destroyed by fire last year, is considering running for the U.S. Senate. Bevin, a Republican, would not be challenging Senator Richard Blumenthal in 2016, but rather Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell….yes, in Kentucky.
According to a report on WHAS-TV in Louisville, Kentucky, Bevin is contemplating representing the Tea Party in a challenge to McConnell in the GOP primary next year. Bevin lives in the Blue Grass State where he runs a hedge fund.

Might be an interesting race in Kentucky in 2014. Actress Ashley Judd is also considering challenging McConnell.
