Texas Attorney General takes heat for campaigning with Ted Nugent after calling President Obama a 'subhuman mongrel'

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is the leading Republican candidate for governor in Texas. He is taking heat for campaigning along-side controversial rock star Ted Nugent. Last month, Nugent called President Obama a 'communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel.' He called Greg Abbot a 'friend' and 'blood brother.' For the last two weeks AC360 extended an invitation to Mr Abbott to come on the show, but he declined, citing scheduling issues. So Ed Lavandera traveled to an Abbott campaign event to get answers.

Anderson discussed this with chief political analyst Gloria Borger and political commentator Ana Navarro.
