It seems that Republicans don’t take kindly to wife beaters being involved in politics:
But many of the challengers have created their own problems.
Mr. Wolf, a radiologist, was revealed to have a penchant for posting X-rays of his patients with gruesome injuries online. Mr. Bevin, who is lashing out at Mr. McConnell for supporting the 2008 bank bailout, sent a letter in his capacity as head of an investment fund praising the bill. Mr. Carr has drawn little attention except for when he asserted that the United States invaded Iraq before Afghanistan. And the conservative who was going to challenge Senator Susan Collins of Maine, Erick Bennett, was found to have been convicted of assaulting his wife. (He withdrew from the primary, though he is now considering a write-in effort.)
