ANGOLA, Ind. (AP) -- A U.S. Senate candidate from Indiana is discontinuing a television ad featuring an Uber driver and an Indianapolis Colts player who were killed in a suspected drunken-driving crash by a person in the country illegally.
A spokesperson for Braun's campaign says the ad "ran it's (sic) course and made our point," so they are coming out with a new ad as scheduled.
"You don't have a right to take other people's misery and use it for your own political gain. That's just wrong - that's just downright wrong," said Deborah Monroe.
Monroe's husband, Jeffrey, and Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson were killed Feb. 4 in Indianapolis.
The ad narrated by Braun called for a crackdown on immigration and displayed pictures of Monroe and Jackson, along with the mug shot of Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemalan man charged in the crash.
