Democratic candidate for Congress Charles Barron of New York's Eighth District has picked up the endorsement of white supremacist David Duke. The Daily Caller reports:
Duke says he’s endorsing Charles Barron, the leading candidate for the 10th district primary on June 26, because of their shared emnity toward “zionists.”
Barron is an African-American city politician who has been slammed as an anti-white racist and as a Jew-hater. However, he’s already got the endorsement of the retiring Democratic congressman, Rep. Edolphus Towns.
Barron faces Hakeem Jeffries in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, and a number of New York Democrats, including Chuck Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, Ed Koch, Steve Israel, and Jerrold Nadler, have endorsed Jeffries.
