Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Rich Carmona's campaign manager tweaked an Arizona Republican Party contract worker in a Twitter exchange and is now using his response in a fundraising appeal.
Alexis Tameron's fundraising appeal Thursday said she was attacked by Shane Wikfors with "degrading rhetoric" based on her Hispanic heritage.
Wikfors was responding to a tweet by Tameron on Wednesday, when he asked her in his own tweet when she last had to show papers and suggested it was when Carmona hired her.
Tameron's tweet was the first to go personal, noting that Wikfors put a "showusyourpapers" notation on a tweet related to Mitt Romney's tax returns.
Her tweet asked Wikfors whether he was still trying to try make up for past comments taking a softer line on an immigration issue.
