McConnell's NRSC 'all in' for Cochran? Tea Party Express feels the same about McDaniel!

Kentucky, Kentucky. McConnell's up to no good (again), gathering the GOP establishment to back fellow crony Thad Cochran in a last ditch effort to defeat conservative Chris McDaniel in the MS runoff...
Breitbart: A dozen or so senior GOP senators gathered with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) headquarters to raise funds for Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) on Tuesday evening.

Noteably, none of them seemed too proud of it, based on how quickly they scurried away from the building—some outright declining to offer even a simple word of praise for Cochran—when asked why they were there.

The fundraiser—a last dash from the GOP establishment and McConnell, who is “all in” to save Cochran from his conservative primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel—occurred just hours before conservative Dave Brat crushed House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a primary for his Virginia House seat, delivering the biggest-ever blow the Tea Party has delivered to a sitting GOP incumbent.

Senators who gathered to offer financial support for Cochran included Cochran’s Mississippi colleague Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) and Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AL), Rob Portman (R-OH), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Barrasso (R-WY), John Thune (R-SD), John Cornyn (R-TX), Bob Corker (R-TN), Susan Collins (R-ME), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Dean Heller (R-NV), Richard Shelby (R-AL), and McConnell (R-KY).

Cochran himself didn’t even show up for the fundraiser.
HA! He hardly shows up in Mississippi either! Wasting more Republican donations, NRSC.

In the meantime, while McDaniel continues to lead Cochran, as well as gaining a few more endorsements (libertarian hero Ron Paul & tv/radio Republican personality Sean Hannity), another organization, quite the antithesis of what the NRSC has become, have announced through an emailer that they're 'all in' as well...but NOT for ol' Thaddeus...
To ensure a victory for the conservative insurgent campaign of Chris McDaniel in Mississippi's critical special election, we are going all in.

As is the case with special elections, turnout will likely be low. That means that it is imperative that we make sure that McDaniel supporters are motivated enough to turn out to vote.

We are taking the Tea Party Express along with our staff down to Mississippi to join in the epic fight against the politics-as-usual crowd and will be holding rallies and conducting a massive Get-Out-The-Vote-Effort.
Mississippians, it's time for one more round. Let's follow Virginia's lead and show Kentucky how to do it! Now is the time! #McDaniel2014!
