Oklahoma Republican Sally Kern apologized Thursday for statements she made against women and Black people during a debate on affirmative action. She has since issued this statement to apologize for her remarks.

“I want to humbly apologize for my statements last night about African-Americans and women,” Kern, R-Oklahoma City, said in a statement. “I believe that our government should not provide preference based on race or gender. I misspoke while trying to convey this point last night during debate.”
