Lincoln, NE -
A Republican candidate for Nebraska governor is getting some heat for a recent campaign ad.
It features Beau McCoy slapping a President Obama figurine off a fence while talking about the Affordable Care Act.
Executive Director of the Nebraska Democratic Party Dan Marvin called on McCoy to pull the ad Friday.
"No matter what party you belong to, the depiction of violence displayed in McCoy’s ad is completely disrespectful to the office of the presidency, and sends the wrong message to our children," Marvin said in a statement.
In a response, McCoy issued his own statement saying, Nebraskans are "tired of being pushed around by the Obama administration and the federal government."
