The Portland Press Herald reports Gibson said Friday he's walking away with his "head held high".

Gibson had also criticized another Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor who also gained fame after the tragedy, student David Hogg, calling him "a baldfaced liar".

"It's the best thing for everybody", Gibson said.

"There is nothing about this skinhead lesbian that impresses me and there is nothing that she has to say unless you're a frothing at the mouth moonbat", Gibson tweeted.

But, she added, "after reading Mr Gibson's comments I thought that the people of Greene and Sabattus deserved a representative who will respect people and try to work through their differences to make our lives better".

Despite his shocking attack, Gibson told the Press Herald on Friday, "I am not walking away with my head hung low".

Gibson apologized on Twitter before deleting his account, writing, "I would like to extend to you my most honest apology for how I addressed you".

The high school senior powerfully repeated the phrase "We call BS" about NRA-funded politicians, gun advocates and those who don't believe the Parkland teenagers know enough to speak up. However, the state's most prominent Republican, Maine's controversial governor, Paul LePage, has yet to denounce Gibson's comments.

In a statement to the Press Herald, Democratic state chairman Phil Bartlett called on Republican leadership to universally condemn Gibson.

Amy Volk, a Republican state senator in ME, tweeted that Gibson had previously attacked her on social media and that he should not run for office.

The military veteran used Twitter to reach out to Gonzalez and acknowledged that the way he addressed her was "wrong and unacceptable".

Gibson subsequently apologized to Gonzalez: "I would like to extend to you my most honest apology for how I addressed you". He tweeted that he understood how important her work is to her. Gibson then offered his hand in "friendship and understanding".

While Gibson has since deleted the tweets and apologized for their content, Hogg took the opportunity to call on his more than 450,000 Twitter followers to find someone to enter the race and oppose Gibson. Republican Thomas Martin Jr. and Democrat Eryn Gilchrist have thrown their hats into the ring.
