McConnell tries to rally GOP without mentioning Republicans

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is urging Republican delegates to focus on a single politician: Barack Obama.
    
McConnell focused nearly all of his speech during Saturday’s Kentucky Republican Convention on opposing the outgoing Democratic president. Not mentioned were any of the potential Republican alternatives, who are embroiled in a nasty fight over delegates heading into a possibly chaotic national convention this summer.
    
Kentucky Republicans selected 25 delegates to the national convention on Saturday, and McConnell was one of them. He urged delegates not to give Obama a third term by electing Hillary Clinton. But McConnell would not say who he would support of the remaining Republican candidates: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
    
McConnell also reassured delegates that party leaders were not selecting the nominee.
