On Sunday, a McDaniel campaign spokesperson criticized the Cochran campaign for releasing the audio in a statement to the Clarion-Ledger.

"We are shocked and appalled, by how the Cochran campaign is using the actions of a sick individual to slander Chris McDaniel," the campaign spokesman said.

Since McDaniel's Saturday morning interview, his campaign has tried to clarify what they knew and when about Kelly's arrest. In a statement Saturday night, the campaign said that Sojourner knew about the arrest on Friday night, and McDaniel was filled in "briefly" about it on Saturday morning.
