Remember Dale Peterson of Alabama, the gun-toting candidate for agriculture commissioner whose unorthodox campaign videos were among the most watched of 2010?

He’s back. Peterson appears in a campaign video with his wife, Kathy, who is running for president of the public service commission. And with gun in hand, he warns those who might steal her yard signs.

It’s called, “Kathy Peterson Gives A Rip About Alabama!” a reference to his usage of that phrase in his past videos.
