Scalise Condemns 'Unacceptable' Threats GOP PA Gov Candidate Made Against Opponent

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) condemned Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner’s violent rhetoric Friday.

Wagner said in a video on his campaign’s official Facebook page: "Well, Governor Wolf, let me tell you what, between now and Nov. 6, you better put a catcher's mask on your face, because I'm going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes.” 

Scalise, who was shot in the hip by a gunman targeting GOP lawmakers last summer, called Wagner’s rhetoric “unacceptable.”

Rep. Scalise has taken to condemning violent political rhetoric on both sides of the aisle lately.

Earlier this week he condemned former Attorney General Eric Holder’s remarks that Democrats should “kick” Republicans and Hillary Clinton’s call for Democrats to abandon civility until the midterm elections are over.
