LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- Campaign manager Jesse Benton said Friday he does not agree with what he told a political activist in January, that he was "sort of holding my nose for two years" as he manages Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign.
The secretly recorded phone conversation was released on a political website late Wednesday.
"It was just such a stupid thing to say," Benton told WHAS11 News. "I'm not sure quite why I said it. (I was) talking to a hard core Ron Paul supporter that - I guess they don't quite understand what we're trying to build here."
