Just saw it on Rachel. There is no excuse for this shit. He got 30% of the vote. Conspiracy theorist, gay hating, freak running for Tennessee Senate. This makes us look like idiots. Will add video when available.
The Tennessee Democratic Party disavowed Mark Clayton over his association with a hate group after Clayton won Thursday's Democratic primary for U.S. Senate to face Republican Sen. Bob Corker.It seems that among the duties of the folks at the DNC that someone might be keeping a list of who is being fielded in each of the 50 states for US Senate. It's really not that long a list and it is that important a task. Somebody, oh, I don't know, maybe even the Chair might keep tabs on the progress of such important things?
"The only time that Clayton has voted in a Democratic primary was when he was voting for himself. Many Democrats in Tennessee knew nothing about any of the candidates in the race, so they voted for the person at the top of the ticket," the party said in a statement Friday.
Clayton, a 35-year-old flooring installer, won slightly more than 48,000 votes in the primary, or about twice as many as the nearest of his six other unknown challengers.
