David Adams says he has found Mitch McConnell’s primary challenger

Tea Party activist David Adams told LEO Weekly today that he has finally found a Tea Party challenger to run against Sen. Mitch McConnell in next year’s Senate race, but we’ll have to wait a while longer to figure out who that challenger is.

“The search is complete and it was successful,” says Adams. “We’re just about ready to rock and roll.”

Adams declined to give any additional information about the mystery Republican, other than to say he or she would announce “pretty soon.”

We’re guessing whoever this person is comes out of the gates hitting McConnell on the NSA/PRISM/Patriot Act kerfuffle, as Sen. Rand Paul and a good number of the Tea Party faithful are up in arms over this. McConnell has been one of the biggest defenders of secretive and unaccountable surveillance of U.S. citizens since 9/11, no matter how much Jesse Benton and his campaign try to reinvent him as a Guy Fawkes mask-wearing Liberty Patriot.

Mitch McConnell next year — though not yet name him or her — we noted that whoever it is will likely come out of the gate swinging against the Senate minority leader over his decade-plus of support for every government measure to spy on Americans in the War on Terror. Two hours after that post, McConnell broke his silence on the NSA story and said he had no problem with the program and hopes Ed Snowden is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. No surprise.
