"I've heard that he's been cussing" at campaign events, debate moderator Melissa Davlin told the Statesman.
Two-term incumbent Gov. Butch Otter (R) wanted Brown and another candidate, Walt Bayes, to be invited to the debate. Brown does not pose a serious threat to Otter, according to the Statesman.
Brown himself is aware that his comments can sometimes cross the line. His campaign website lists a number of "Harleyisms" which include:
• "Register Communists, not firearms. That means domestic enemies of the United States Constitution such as Bloomberg, Schumer and Pelosi"
• "Work harder!
Millions on welfare depend on you"
• "If you want more inches – stroke it."
• "God, how I wish we had picked our own cotton"
