Gabby Mercer: "I Have Nothing Against Anybody"

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 at 9:23 PM

Republican Gabby Saucedo Mercer, who was in the national spotlight after her comments about Middle Eastern people became an internet sensation today, will easily win the Republican nomination to face Congressman Raul Grijalva in November.

Mercer said that the tape that was posted "was taken out of context."

"I am not a racist like they are trying to portray me," Mercer said. "I have nothing against anybody."

Mercer said that Grijalva's posting of the video "tells you what kind of character he has."

"A lot of people are unhappy with him," she said. "I think I have a good chance."
