Michigan Republican Senate nominee John James apologized Tuesday after opponents pointed out the brief appearance of a swastika in one of his campaign ads.
The Nazi symbol was pinned to a bulletin board in a school hallway featured in the ad.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I need to fess up and admit this was a terrible error on our part,” James said at a press conference Tuesday, according to The Daily Beast.
“We should have caught this error, and we didn’t, and there’s no excuse. I’m responsible for everything that our team does and fails to do, and I will do everything in my power to make sure this never, ever happens again.”
James, who is taking on Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) said that the clip used in the campaign ad was “stock footage.”
