Will Former John McCain Advisor John Weaver Run Larry Forgy's Campaign?

Yes, this is just a rumor at the moment. But the word on the street is that John McCain's chief political strategist John Weaver will enter serious negotiations to run Larry Forgy's U.S. Senate campaign against Mitch McConnell.

Remember that Weaver left his official role with the McCain campaign after a dispute with Rick Davis earlier this year, but remains close with John McCain, who has made no secret of his desire to defeat Mitch McConnell.

With John McCain as the likely Republican nominee, this could be a huge development. Look for Mitch McConnell to start scrambling in fear that our Presidential nominee will be supporting a true conservative, Larry Forgy.
