Is Rand Paul Ducking Questions about Jesse Benton?

The Kentucky Lexington Herald-Leader writes:
Benton has close ties to the Paul family. He is married to Ron Paul's granddaughter and ran Republican Rand Paul's successful 2010 campaign to become Kentucky's junior senator.

Rand Paul, of Bowling Green, has not commented about Benton's resignation from the McConnell campaign. Paul was scheduled to host a fundraiser Tuesday afternoon at Forcht Bank in Lexington's Hamburg Place for Republican state House candidate Ken Kearns, who is trying to defeat Democratic incumbent Susan Westrom.

The Kearns campaign said last Friday that media could attend the event but on Monday said the event had been closed to the media, at Paul's request.

The Kearns campaign gave no reason Paul, who generally is talkative to reporters, did not want the media to attend.
