Gov. Dan Patrick, who's campaigning by flying around in a private jet and speaking in front of local TV cameras at airports, made his newest push for re-election, flogging Nike and and former National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick in a new radio spot and a social media campaign that encourages Republicans to boycott the company.

"What was Nike thinking?".

"As far as Kaepernick and all that's concerned, we all have the freedom of speech and he's using it in a way that's non-violent which is something you just have to respect as an American", he said.

After the company unveiled its 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign, featuring Colin Kaepernick, people have vocalized their support or disdain for the move. I don't think it's appropriate what they did, ' Trump said in a Fox News interview before the rally. "And I also feel like it's less exciting to consumers".

Taya Kyle, widow of late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, took to Facebook to criticize the company and to say she was joining in on widespread boycotts.

The two-minute ad highlights superstar athletes LeBron James, Serena Williams and others, and touches on the controversy of NFL player protests during the national anthem.

Nike's Colin Kaepernick campaign has cost it its first institutional contract.

Nike's ad campaign has galvanized supporters and critics alike on social media.

Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. told USA Today Sports that the university may cause the university to change its apparel company, according to an article published Friday. "Even it if means sacrificing everything".

The small Christian College of the Ozarks announced in a news release it was scrapping Nike-made uniforms "and anything else that displays the Nike "swoosh" logo".

The commercial has polarized opinion, with Trump among those critical of Nike for giving Kaepernick a public platform.

The National Association of Police Organizations also called for a boycott of Nike over its support for the former Super Bowl participant, who has emphasized his opposition to police brutality, and the National Fraternal Order of Police condemned the campaign.

"I'm really encouraged by it, " Stills said Thursday.

Redskins cornerback Josh Norman recently criticized Kaepernick for "ducking" the ongoing furor over the protests by largely remaining silent.
