MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The brother of the Wisconsin congressional candidate Randy Bryce says it is “unconscionable” that the Bryce campaign released a letter from his elderly mother.

Bryce’s mother, Nancy Bryce, denounced a campaign ad on Wednesday featuring her son James Bryce in which he endorsed the Republican in the race, Bryan Steil.

The winner of that contest will replace House Speaker Paul Ryan.

James Bryce said on Thursday on “The Jay Weber Show” that he had spoken with his mom and “it’s unconscionable a campaign would take advantage of a vulnerable and elderly mother and use her as a pawn in an ad like that.”

But Nancy Bryce is standing by the letter. She told The Associated Press Thursday that the letter and the words are hers.
