GOP's Brunner rejects hateful "kill Claire" statement
The Kansas City Star
Good for John Brunner.
The GOP candidate for Claire McCaskill’s Senate seat has issued a statement bashing the hateful comments made by a tea party activist about McCaskill.
The words “kill the Claire Bear” are reverberating around the nation today, especially after another GOP Senate candidate - Sarah Steelman - refused to condemn them. In fact, she sounded like she was endorsing them.
Not Brunner, who issued this statement, picked up in a story by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
“This type of rhetoric is unconscionable and I reject this kind of politics. Comments like these have no place in this U.S. Senate campaign, or any other campaign in this country, because they don’t represent American values.”
