FILE - In this Aug. 3, 2013 file photo, Matt Bevin of Louisville, Ky. speaks in Fancy Farm, Ky. Bevin, a Louisville businessman, will face off against Sen. Mitch McConnell in the primary election for the Republican party ticket. Republicans are counting on some Southern comfort to lift them into the Senate majority next year.
