Mitch McConnell ‘Next Guy in the Crosshairs’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will be the next target of conservatives frustrated with party leadership, according to one of the conservative representatives who pressured House speaker John Boehner in the weeks leading up to his resignation, reports National Review.

“Next guy in the crosshairs will probably be McConnell,” Representative Matt Salmon (R., Ariz.) said in a text message to Senator Mike Lee (R., Utah), according to National Journal’s Sarah Mimms

NR adds;
Salmon’s speculation reflects a theory of Boehner’s struggles that is common among the outgoing speaker’s friends and foes alike — that his unpopularity among the grassroots stems more from McConnell’s failure to take advantage of the Senate majority than anything House Republicans have done.
Boy did Rand make the wrong strategy moves and bet on the wrong horse.

Since Rand has cozyed  up to McConnell, if McConnell loses his leadership position, it will  weaken Rand.
