(JTA) — A top challenger to longtime U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California is a white supremacist who espouses anti-Semitic views.
Patrick Little, a Republican, is polling at 18 percent behind Feinstein, a Democrat who has served more than four terms in the Senate. Feinstein is polling at 39 percent in the race, which will pit the top-two vote-getters against each other in the general election in November.
The primary is set for June 5.
Little has been endorsed by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, but has complained that “alt-right” media outlets such as The Daily Stormer have not been supportive of his campaign.
Right Wing Watch outed Little’s white supremacist views in an article last week.
In a campaign video posted to YouTube earlier this week, Little said he “woke up to the Jewish question and dedicated my life to exposing these Jews that control our country.”
In a post last month on his blog, Little wrote: “We all want what has been taboo until now to say aloud, we want to be around other whites, safe from non-whites. But unless we start voicing that sentiment regularly at the ballot box, all of the places we have retreated to will be eventually overrun by non-whites.”
Little on his Twitter account has accused Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency of playing a leading role in the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and said that “No man in history saved more Jewish lives than Adolf Hitler.” His Twitter account was suspended earlier this year over statements amounting to Holocaust denial.
