It’s pretty awkward that Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager Jesse Benton was caught on tape in January saying that he was only going to work for McConnell to help Rand Paul’s presidential campaign in 2016 and that he was basically going to “hold his nose” for the next two years while he worked to reelect the Human Turtle. It doesn’t help that Benton is caught up in a scheme to pay an Iowa state senator to switch his allegiance from Michele Bachmann to Ron Paul in the lead-up to the Iowa Caucuses. I guess it’s a rather simple thing to replace his campaign manager and it will be largely forgotten by November next, but part of this arrangement was about preventing any daylight between McConnell and the Paul camp, and that seems to have blown up in their faces.
