Arkansas State Sen. Kim Hendren (R) referred to Sen. Chuck Schumer as "that Jew" during a campaign event. Hendren is challenging Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D). He further explained his remark by saying "unlike Sen. Schumer, I believe in traditional values, like we used to see on The Andy Griffith Show."

Hendren is the minority leader of the Arkansas state Senate.
