Rand Paul has hired one of his father's former aides to manage his campaign for the U.S. Senate.

Jesse Benton, who was communications director for former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul's last campaign, replaces David Adams as campaign manager.

The shake-up was announced a week after a round of interviews in which Paul dismayed fellow Republicans with his views on racial segregation. Paul, an eye surgeon, won the GOP nomination last week.

Paul has been at the center of a lingering controversy since he expressed misgivings about the 1964 Civil Rights Act, suggesting to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow last week that the federal government shouldn't have the power to force restaurants to serve minorities if business owners don't want to.
