Democrats withdraw support

Mark Clayton won the Tennessee Democratic U.S. Senate primary last Thursday. Now the Democratic party rejects Senate nominee Mark Clayton. According to the state party, "Mark Clayton is associated with a known hate group..." and the State Party will not promote him or support him. They are also encouraging Democratic voters to write-in a candidate in the November general election.

I thought maybe Clayton was in the Ku Klux Klan, but apparently the statement was made because he is vice-president of Public Advocate of the United States. I'm not familiar with them, but this conservative group describes itself as a "conservative, pro-family advocacy group" and opposes same-sex marriage and abortion.
