(Louisville Herald-Leader) Many of Kentucky’s Tea Party leaders are plotting a strategy to defeat U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell in the 2014 Republican primary, a spokesman for a group calling itself the United Kentucky Tea Party said Tuesday.

Tea Party groups in the state are so dissatisfied with McConnell that “we are working on a battle plan with the ultimate goal to retire him next year,” said John T. Kemper III of Lexington, a spokesman for the group.

Kemper’s comment came a day after the group, which describes itself as a roundtable of leaders from more than a dozen Tea Party groups in Kentucky, issued a news release warning McConnell that “we will not allow our message or movement to be co-opted for political purposes.”
