Neo-Nazi Arthur Jones, former leader of the American Nazi Party, nabbed the Republican nomination to represent Illinois’ 3rd District in the House of Representatives. The candidate, who famously called the Holocaust, “the biggest, blackest, lie in history,” and on his website, refers to Jews as “blood thirsty, criminal vampires,” racked up more than 23,000 Republican votes in the March, 2018 primary. His campaign slogan, echoing the President Trump, is “America First.”
It is unclear whether Jones will benefit from funding from the Republican Congressional Committee.

A Holocaust denier who praises Hitler and aspires to “remove the Jews from power” is running as a Republican for U.S. Senate in California. Patrick Little (R-CA) sees himself as a Trump-style Republican, claiming to be “the only America first candidate in California.”
White supremicist David Duke, former state GOP representative from Louisiana and KKK Grand Wizard, has endorsed Little. A SurveyUSA poll found Little to have the highest support of any Republican candidate, with 18% of the electorate backing him.
