At a Republican gathering Saturday in Kentucky, Davis said, “That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button.”
Davis said Monday it was “a poor choice of words” while discussing national security issues. He sent a letter of apology to Obama, asking for forgiveness.
Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton called the comment a “condescending and personal attack” on the first African-American presidential candidate to be a leading contender.
