(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- The Tennessee Democratic Party is disavowing its senatorial candidate after party officials realized the candidate planned to use the race as a platform to broadcast his radical views -- which include talk about FEMA camps and a NAFTA super highway -- a road from Mexico City to Toronto that would undermine American sovereignty.
Mark Clayton also reportedly believes that Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to amend the constitution so he can fulfill Hitler’s superman scenario. These were all displayed on his website, which now appears to have been taken down.
With virtually no money and little campaigning, Clayton won the seven-candidate Tennessee Democratic Senate primary with 29 percent of the vote Thursday.The threshold for getting on the ballot is low – only 25 signatures are needed to secure a place on the ticket. The candidate is crediting his success to his message for his primary win, but Democratic Party officials say it has more to do with his placement on the ballot.
“It just so happens that his name was at the top of the ticket,” said Democratic party spokesman Sean Braisted. “Unfortunately we didn’t have any other candidates that ran the kind of campaign to gain statewide notability and win.”
