The candidate for governor in Pennsylvania promised to stomp all over his opponent's face with golf spikes.

."Somewhere yesterday, your people said that I raised a ... white flag," CNN reported Wagner as saying. "Well, Gov. Wolf, let me tell you, between now and November 6, you better put a catcher's mask on your face," he adds. "Because I'm going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes because I'm going to win this for the state of Pennsylvania."

Wolf, a Democrat seeking a second term, leads Wagner in at least five polls.

Andrew Romeo, Wagner's campaign manager, said in a statement that the candidate's comments "were not to be taken literally," CNN reported.
