Right loses: Does that mean GOP is turning left?

The news this morning as reported by The Guardian is that conservative right wing candidates were defeats in primary elections in Georgia and Kentucky. That means Mitch McConnell, the most disliked Senator in the USA is a winner. Does anyone believe that Mitch is not a right wing conservative?

“The real fight, everyone here agrees, begins on Wednesday, when the still-unpopular McConnell begins his general election campaign against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in what's shaping up to be the toughest re-election fight of his career. McConnell's unfavorable ratings are dangerously high and he is, to many, the face of Washington gridlock.”

Mitch McConnell is a tough politician who will pull out all of the stops to defeat his opponent. Yet, she is a tough one herself, this time around.

For Dave Perdue, the fight isn’t over. When you have to fight this hard for your own party’s nomination, how does that bode for fighting your Democrat opposition?

“David Perdue will face Rep. Jack Kingston (R., Ga.) in a July runoff election for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

The two Republicans finished atop a seven-way Republican primary field that also included Karen Handel and Reps. Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey. The Associated Press called the race for Mr. Perdue, who received 30% of the vote, and Mr. Kingston, who received 26%, with 87% of precincts reporting results.”

Are American voters sufficiently conservative to map to the GOP candidates? Election 2014 might answer that question.
