In Case You Missed It: There was a U.S. Senate Republican primary

Matt Bevin entered the 2014 U.S. Senate primary last July as a long shot to wrest the GOP nomination from five-term Sen. Mitch McConnell. When voting began Tuesday morning, Bevin remained a long shot.
Bevin struggled to get his footing against a McConnell campaign that was prepared to exploit every possible weakness, as Politico’s James Hohmann outlined in his piece “The McConnell challenge that wasn’t” on Tuesday.
But both sides made mistakes throughout the primary. It was like nine months of watching Tony Romo in the fourth quarter.
If you missed parts of it — or forgot it — here’s political reporter Nick Storm’s recap of the 2014 GOP primary in less than five minutes:
