GOP Candidate Says He Chose “Poor Metaphor” When He Threatened To Stomp Dem’s Face With “Golf Spikes”

The Hill reports:

Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner (R) took down a video saying that he would “stomp all over” Gov. Tom Wolf’s face Friday, stating that he had chosen a “poor metaphor” in making the comments.

Wagner said that “I shouldn’t have said what I said” in the Facebook video live-streamed Friday.

Wagner told PennLive.com that he meant his remarks as a “metaphor for how he will approach the final stretch of the campaign.” Wolf is heavily favored in the contest, with a number of polls showing he has a double-digit lead.
