Matt Bevin is getting plenty of support from the Tea Party, but in a nationally televised interview, Bevin says he's not a Tea Party candidate.

Bevin appeared on Thursday's "Daily Rundown" on MSNBC.

He bristled at the the label, even though he acknowledged he might be ideologically in sync with them.

"I've never been a member of a Tea Party.," Bevin told Luke Russert.

"I never went to any Tea Party meetings, although I am fiscally very much in like mind."

Instead, Bevin declared that his race against McConnell is motivated by what he sees as a lack of leadership from the GOP leader.
