I don't recall his limited his original comments to doctors, but maybe he did

N.H. sheriff candidate apologizes for saying he could use deadly force to stop abortion doctors

Glen Johnson, Globe Staff

A Republican candidate for sheriff in New Hampshire apologized today after saying he could use deadly force if necessary to stop an abortion doctor, a comment made as the GOP tries to move beyond Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akins own abortion comment.

I want to be clear to the people of New Hampshire that I made several comments about the use of deadly force against abortion doctors that I regret, that I apologize for, and that I fully retract, said Hillsborough County sheriff candidate Frank Szabo. In making comments yesterday, I let my passionate stance against abortion get the better of me.

Szabo, a Tea Party Republican challenging incumbent Sheriff James Hardy, a fellow Republican, added: I honestly cant imagine a situation where I would want to use deadly force. In fact, I would use every possible peaceful and lawful tool at my disposal to execute the job of Hillsborough County sheriff, and the people of the county should have confidence in that.

Hillsborough County is the most populous in New Hampshire, running along the Massachusetts border from Salem west to New Ipswich, and north through Manchester.

Said he would kill to stop an abortion in progress, if necessary to "protect a citizen."

Claims he "lost track" of what he was saying. Claims he has respect for the life of an abortion doctor, even if he does not respect what the abortion doctor does.

Even if that were so, "losing track" of who you would or would not kill is not a quality anyone wants in a sheriff.

Glad y'all are making your crazy obvious before election day. Anyone who votes for you is nuttier than you are.
