Rocker Ted Nugent's controversial comments about the president came to light while he was campaigning with Texas Gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott.
Until now, Abbott has been fairly silent about Nugent.
CNN's Ed Lavandera caught up with the Texas Attorney General.
"I think what he said was wrong," Abbott says. "I think he was wrong to say it, I think he was right to apologize for it, and I think that I agree with his position for him to clean up his language, and raise the elevation of political rhetoric."
