Washington (CNN) – The head of the Republican National Committee waved off any suggestion he might not rally behind Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in his bid for reelection.
"Of course I'm going to support the leader of the Republican Party," Reince Priebus told the panel on CNN's "Crossfire" on Tuesday.
Asked by host Stephanie Cutter if he would defect from the Kentucky lawmaker’s camp, Priebus did not give any indication that abdication from the longtime establishment Republican's corner was on the table.
McConnell faces a primary challenge from Tea Party favorite Matt Bevin, a Kentucky businessman who has already won the endorsement of key groups in the conservative wing of the Republican Party.
The Senate Conservatives Fund, a PAC founded by former Sen. Jim DeMint, R-South Carolina, and current head of the right-wing think tank, the Heritage Foundation, announced its support for Bevin in October, after McConnell backed a compromise to end the government shutdown.

I'm from Kentucky. Mitch McConnell has not done anything for us. Not one thing. What he has done is keep almost every county in southeastern and eastern Kentucky on the national list of the 100 poorest counties in America.
Of course he would support McConnell who has kept KY poor for decades. This is the agenda of the Republicans. Suppress the people. McConnell has done a good job of that. But the people of KY has now got a taste of what it means to have Health Insurance, something that McConnell has been against. He doesn't want to help the people of KY, but continue to suppress them. The people of KY finally has got the TRUE message, not the LIES of McConnell. A man who will be defeated in 2014. Only the good wins in the end. not the evil like McConnell has spread in KY
We don't want McConnell because the coal companies own him and we don't want Bevin because he is a conservative retard. I know, trying to find someone intelligent in Kentucky is a difficult task so try this one – give up the seat to the Democrat. That's right – vote for the candidate with a brain – no republican has one.
How was that soujourn on the fainting couch, Reince? If a movie about Hillllary Clinton gave you a fit, brace yourself for Elizabeth Warren. So you know, you don't stand a chance.
I've been watching Crossfire and I believe it's one of the more intelligent and interesting News Programs. For the most part the program is non partisan, including Van Jones but I find myself turning the program off when Stephanie Cutter is participating. She is totally partisan and a turnoff. Her facial expressions are obnoxious and her attitude superior. Aside from Stephanie the program is a winner.
Like a dog to his own vomit.
Can't wait to see the GOBP stuff Jeb Bush down the tea potty's throats 2012 Mitt the twit style.
Rance needs to re-consider. His stance is why we no longer respond to GOP fundraising. McConnell has got to go....most of us are term limits motivated...we no longer want the GOP establishment who helped get us into this mess!
