SAN ANTONIO – After a day of tweeting several pro-Trump polls, the Texas agriculture commissioner appeared to have sent a tweet calling Hillary Clinton an offensive term used to demean and belittle women.

In the tweet, Miller posted a poll he said was from the Pennsylvania: New Auto Alliance.

The tweet said:

         Pennsylvania: New Auto Alliance

         TRUMP 44

         C*** 43

         Go Trump Go!

It is unclear who sent the tweet from Miller’s account.

The tweet was deleted less than 15 minutes after it was posted.

Miller's campaign released the following statement:

The campaign was posting information on Twitter today and inadvertently retweeted a tweet that they were not aware contained a derogatory term. The tweet was taken down as soon as possible. Commissioner Miller finds the use of the term vulgar and offensive and apologizes to anyone who may have seen it.
