Wagner to Gov. Wolf: I'll stomp on your face with golf spikes. Watch the full video from October 12, 2018.

Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial nominee Scott Wagner is using what his campaign calls a metaphor and saying that he'll stomp on the face of Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf with golf spikes.

Wagner made the comments in a nearly 3-minute Facebook video post Friday.

Wagner's campaign says the comments aren't to be taken literally and are a metaphor for how he'll approach the campaign's final stretch before the Nov. 6 election. Wagner was in the midst of complaining about ads attacking Wagner's waste-hauling business.

Wolf's campaign says the comments show Wagner is "unhinged and unfit for office."

It's the latest in a string of comments Wagner made that references violence.

A primary opponent's attack ad in April called him "violent Wagner" and teased a video clip from last year when Wagner grabbed a camera from a campaign tracker working for a liberal political opposition group.
