MILWAUKEE — The son of U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Thompson was caught on video suggesting voters this fall should send President Barack Obama back “to Kenya,” but later apologized through the campaign.

Jason Thompson, the son of the former governor, made the comments Sunday during a brunch hosted by the Kenosha County Republican Party.

“We have the opportunity to send President Obama back to Chicago — or Kenya,” said Jason Thompson, an attorney at a large Milwaukee law firm.

The comment drew laughs from the crowd, with one woman jokingly adding, “We are taking donations for that Kenya trip.”
