Does Republican businessman Matt Bevin have a shot against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)?

If Bevin's speech at at Fancy Farm is any indication, he is at least worth watching. The Louisville businessman's remarks Saturday at the church picnic and required campaign stop for political candidates in Kentucky won good reviews in local media.

"I don't intend to run to the right of Mitch McConnell, I don't intend to run to the left of Mitch McConnell, I intend to run straight over the top of Mitch McConnell," Bevin said in his speech.

Now, you decide. Does Bevin have what it takes? The full speech is embedded below. The comments section awaits!
