Iowa Independent Senate candidate Bob Quast has a new ad out in which he waves around a Glock gun and threatens to “blow your balls off.”

The ad, tuned to cheery music, is called “#GotBalls Vote for Bob Quast” and features Quast, a long-shot candidate in the race, arguing about term limits and the Second Amendment.

“If you are the sexual predator and sociopath who murdered my sister Lynette and you come to my front door to do harm to my girls, I’m going to use my Glock. To blow your balls off,” Quast said smiling.

Quast takes a jab at another eye-catching ad, by state Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) in which she touted her experience castrating pigs.

“Now please do not confuse me with Iowa’s Republican candidate for Senate,” Quast said before snapping his fingers. The video then shows a picture of a pig.

Quast also directs his fire at Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA), the likely Democratic nominee in the race. He references a recent flap by Braley in which Braley warns about a mere farmer running the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Congressman Braley, you have nothing to fear, as we are friendly folks here,” Quast said holding up his Glock and a knife. “Please accept my open invitation for an open debate prior to our June 3rd primary. I will leave my gun at home, Joni can leave her knife on the farm as long as you agree to leave your elite law degree in D.C. We’ll just use our brains to debate your reckless laws and taxes like Braleycare.”

Quast is a former contractor for the Army. According to the Des Moines Register he was planning to run as a Democrat but was unable to get the necessary number of signatures to get on the ballot.
