GOP Members Rush to Denounce David Duke After He Announces Senate Bid

Former KKK grand wizard David Duke pulled a fast one on us all. He floated a congressional run, then announced a senatorial one in the state of Louisiana, seemingly emboldened by his presidential candidate, Donald Trump, and his various stances.

National Republican Senatorial Committee Executive Director Ward Baker quickly responded to the announcement.

So did other Louisianan senatorial candidates.

In fact, the LA GOP in general was pretty swift in their disavowal.

Duke has responded to their distancing themselves from him with his own video.

He thanked them for “coming out against” him. Interesting tactic.
