FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, already facing a stiff Democratic challenge for re-election, could pick up a tea party primary opponent later this week.

Louisville businessman Matt Bevin's entry into the race would force a major shift in the McConnell campaign, which has been concentrating entirely on Democratic opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky's 34-year-old secretary of state.
