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.
