Shotgun-Toting Ad Triggers Libs

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp has triggered an uproar with a campaign ad that shows him pointing a shotgun toward a young man — who supposedly wants to date his daughter but first has to recite Kemp’s campaign platform.

Kemp, Georgia’s Republican secretary of state, aired the commercial on local stations. Viewers reportedly called the ad offensive, but the campaign has stood by the spot.

The ad, titled “Jake,” shows Kemp sitting in a living room holding a double-barrel shotgun next to an actor named “Jake.”

“I’m Brian Kemp. This is Jake. Young man interested in one of my daughters,” Kemp says. “Jake asked why I was running for governor.”
