If Duke runs?
The Republican establishment are NOT gonna be happy with the media coverage OUTSIDE of Louisanna….
Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke says that he might run against House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and that Scalise is a “sellout.”
The Louisiana Republican has been caught up in a controversy over revelations that in 2002 he addressed a white supremacist group founded by Duke.
“I might just have to run against Steve Scalise,” Duke said Wednesday in an interview with “The Jim Engster Show” first reported by BuzzFeed. “I really might. I’m definitely going to consider it.”
Duke added that Scalise should resign from his leadership position and Congress altogether.
“He should resign because the difference between Steve Scalise and I is that he campaigned on the same issues that I introduced to the Republican Party, but he sold out,” Duke said.
Duke criticized Scalise for saying that speaking to Duke’s group, the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, was a “mistake I regret,” after the revelation last month.
“I said nothing different at the conference any different than what I ran for office on,” Duke said. “This wasn’t a Klan meeting. It wasn’t any sort of a radical meeting, it was a meeting that said there’s European-American rights, right?”Share on Facebook
