Judas Rand?

Is Rand Paul getting nervous about his endorsement of Mitch McConnell? reports:
Tea party darling Rand Paul endorsed Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell long ago, but that didn’t stop him Friday from sharing kind words about McConnell’s GOP primary challenger, Louisville businessman Matt Bevin.
“I think he’s a good, honest, Christian man,” Paul told reporters in Louisville, shortly after Bevin officially filed to run against McConnell in next May’s GOP primary in Kentucky. “I’m not saying anything bad about Matt Bevin.”
McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton said later Paul “misspoke a little” in assessing Bevin. He attributed it to Paul not knowing McConnell’s challenger well.
“I don’t know exactly why those words came out of Sen. Paul’s mouth,” said Benton, who managed Paul’s successful 2010 general election Senate campaign in Kentucky.
