Tennessee Democratic Party Disavows Senate Candidate
The Tennessee Democratic Party is disavowing Mark Clayton as their party's U. S. Senate nominee, saying the little-known candidate belongs to a hate group. Clayton, a floor installer, received twice the votes of his nearest competitor in a seven-candidate Democratic primary Thursday.
Clayton would challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Corker. TDP says Clayton is Vice President of a known hate group in Washington, D.C. called Public Advocate of the United States. The organization calls itself a conservative advocacy group, the Southern Poverty Law Center calls the organization an anti-gay hate group.
