Jesse Benton Speaks Out: What I Did Was Just So Dumb

Mitch McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton continues damage control after a taped recording emerged  of Benton saying he holds his nose while working for McConnell.  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 McConnell's re-election campaign.

"It was just such a stupid thing to say," Benton told Kentucky's WHAS11 television.

"It was just so dumb," Benton continued. "I don't feel that way at all. Being asked to manage Senator McConnell's campaign is one of the great honors of my life and I believe in the man very much.
