Republicans pick racist
Saturday August 7, 2004
An unabashed racist who runs a website claiming the genetic superiority of the white race will contest a congressional seat in Tennessee for the Republican party.
The party had urged voters to support a late contender for the nomination to keep James Hart off the ballot.
But Mr Hart, an estate agent, won more than 82% of the vote against Dennis Bertrand, a financial analyst and a member of the national guard who served in Iraq.
