Former Klu Klux Klan grand wizard and Louisiana Senate candidate David Duke urged voters to cast their ballot for him and Donald Trump in a robocall over the weekend.
"It's time to stand up and vote for Donald Trump for president and vote for me, David Duke for U.S. Senate," Duke said in the call, which was first reported by Buzzfeed.
WMUR asked Trump last week if he wants white supremacists to vote for him on Election Day and the Republican presidential nominee said, "No. I don't at all."
Nevertheless, Duke told Buzzfeed that the response to him and Trump "has been overwhelming."
"Everyone is saying they're voting for Duke and Trump," he said, adding that "a blind man told me he was voting for Duke and Trump."
In his robocall, Duke urged voters to put an end to "massive immigration" to the U.S. in order to prevent Americans from being "outnumbered and outvoted in our own nation."
"We're losing our gun rights, our free speech. We're taxed to death. We're losing our jobs and businesses to unfair trade. We're losing our country. Look at the Super Bowl salute to the Black Panther cop killers," he said.
Duke, who was convicted of tax evasion in 2002, entered the Louisiana Senate race shortly after his voter registration was restored this May. Although he is running as a Republican, the executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee has said "he will not have the support of the NRSC under any circumstance."
"Louisiana voters will be able to choose from several Republican Senate candidates who will have a great impact on the Bayou State and the future of our country. David Duke is not one of them," Ward Baker told USA Today at the time of Duke's entry.
The Trump campaign reaffirmed the candidate's disavowal of Duke in a statement to the Washington Examiner.
"Mr. Trump has continued to denounce David Duke and any group or individual associated with a message of hate," said rapid response director Steven Cheung. "There is no place for this in the Republican Party or our country. We have no knowledge of these calls or any related activities, but strongly condemn and disavow."
