CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Gov. Brian Sandoval is pulling the plug on a campaign pitch that offered video chats and lunch with the state's chief executive in exchange for monthly campaign donations.

In an email Tuesday to The Associated Press, Sandoval's campaign says the first-term Republican governor seeking re-election next year requested that the recurring donor program be removed from the campaign's website.

Launched earlier this month, the Nevada Strong recurring donor program offered various levels of access and face time with the governor depending on monthly contributions.

The campaign says the strategy was intended to entice small donors to get involved in the political process.

Critics countered it was in poor taste and could raise the notion of pay for play.
