If you want to see the lengths Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) campaign is willing to go to get him re-elected against potential challenger Ashley Judd, look no further than the campaign’s official YouTube page, where aides posted a video Wednesday of them dancing “The Harlem Shake” while one held up an enlarged cutout of McConnell’s face.
“We are putting it out because we plan to work hard but also plan to have a lot of fun,” campaign manager Jesse Benton, who formerly ran Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) campaign, told CNN.
