RNC chair: ‘Of course’ I’m supporting McConnell

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.
