LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign says it is "horrified" by a mistake in a new video it released Tuesday morning, March 25.

Near the end of the video after a clip from the University of Louisville's 2013 NCAA champion team, the video shows not the University of Kentucky’s 2012 championship but arch-rival Duke celebrating its win in 2010.

The mistake was caught by LEO Weekly Editor Joe Sonka who was barred from a McConnell news conference last week.

The McConnell campaign has now released a new version of the video with the Duke players replaced by Wildcat Julius Randle.

Though McConnell did not provide an NCAA bracket to WHAS11 last week, his Democratic challenger, Alison Lundergan Grimes, did. She had Kentucky losing in the second round and Louisville losing to Florida in the championship game.
