The left is demanding Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp pull a campaign ad in which he holds a shotgun while talking to a boy who wants to date his daughter.
The ad shows Kemp sitting in a chair holding a breech action shotgun. A boy named “Jake” sits in the next chair, from which he lists off the reasons Kemp is running for governor. Jake says, “Cap government spending,” “Take a chainsaw to regulations,” and “Make Georgia number one for small business.”
Kemp then asked Jake to recite the two things you have to have to date one of his daughters. Jake says, “Respect” and “A healthy appreciation for the Second Amendment.”
I'm a conservative businessman with a 4-Point Plan to put hardworking Georgians first. I'm also the proud father of 3 teenage girls. Here's the thing: If you want to date one of my daughters, you better have respect for women & a healthy appreciation for the 2nd Amendment. #gapol pic.twitter.com/dQvvfk06Rh

Kemp responded to critics of the ad by tweeting, “I’m conservative. Get over it!”
