Greg Abbott: There's "no plans" to campaign again with Ted Nugent

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."

    Erin, I have watch you for the last few nights trying to trash ted nugent on what he said about the president, but when your guest brought up the fact the harry Reid call ed the American public "LIARS", you just didn't care to hear that.
    I wonder why you and some the others ignore this.
    I feel you guys should adress all issue from both sides instead of horning in on just one side, specially when harry response was a 100 times more offensive that Ted's.
    thank you
