McConnell Pulls $5M From Candidate Who Opposes Him As Leader

  • Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s super PAC, the Senate Leadership Fund, slashed $5.6 million it planned to spend in New Hampshire, one of the party’s top targets to flip.
  • The funding commitment for the state came before former Army Gen. Don Bolduc won the Sept. 13 primary.
  • Bolduc consistently has said that he would not support McConnell as the GOP leader.
  • “General Bolduc has defied the naysayers from the beginning and that’s the same approach he is going to take through the finish line to victory,” Bolduc campaign spokeswoman Kate Constantini said in a statement.
