Playing off New Hampshire's state motto of "live free or die," the group joked that Chesley "has a new slogan for the state: Lick Free or Die." 
  
Rebecca Parks, the PAC's tracking director, also tweeted out the video, adding that "I prepare our trackers for a lot of things.  I do not prepare them for being licked by Rand Paul’s operatives." 
 
She joked that the office will now have to "reset the office calendar" on how long it's been since an American Bridge tracker has been licked. 
 
 

Another video posted by the American Bridge PAC shows Chesley and a cameraman discussing who is sponsoring the event.

While agreeing that the event was publicized and that free tickets were available, Chesley tells the cameraman that “we also get to choose who can come into the location that we rented specifically.”

Chesley, after licking the camera, had said, "this is a closed event."
