RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - He says the comment was made in jest, but Republican congressional candidate Mark Walker may regret his words about the possibility of bombing Mexico. His Democratic opponent for the seat in the 6th District has seized on the comment, asking for donations based on what she says is Walker's "radical agenda."

Below is the Fjeld e-mail distributed September 19.
As you may have seen or heard, my opponent has publicly declared he believes we should bomb Mexico.  You can view one of the local news articles by clicking this link and a national news article clicking this link.
Beyond being a callous and dangerous statement, this is one more example of his extremist views and agenda.
Please take a moment to click this link and send a message that we don’t want his extremist views representing us here at home or in the halls of Congress.
Whether it’s $45, $450 or more, every dollar you contribute now will help me stand up to his radical agenda.  
Let’s send a strong message to my opponent that hard working North Carolinians and Americans matter more than his extremist agenda.
Thank you.
