Thompson's Son: Send Obama Back to Kenya

October 15, 2012

Not exactly on message: BuzzFeed reports that Jason Thompson, son of Wisconsin GOP Senate nominee Tommy Thompson, said while speaking at a brunch that "we have the opportunity to send President Obama back to Chicago -- or Kenya." Oh, and it's on video. Per the campaign, his dad has said he apologizes.

The campaign also noted in an email that Tommy Thompson wasn't present when Jason Thompson made the comment. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, however, was there.

Thompson is locked in a tight race with Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin.
