Danny Tarkanian Fundraises with Louisiana Congressman Who Entertained White Supremacists

Las Vegas, NV – Tea Party radical Danny Tarkanian is holding a breakfast fundraiser this morning with House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the Louisiana Congressman who famously tried to distance himself from Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke afterconfirming that he had spoken to a white supremacist hate group.

But it’s no wonder Tarkanian didn’t have a problem with bringing Scalise to Nevada. Just last month, the failed perennial candidate was blaming his opponent’s race and the district’s African American voters for his unsurprising 2012 loss when he was running for a different seat.

“Congressman Steve Scalise used to talk to white nationalists and agrees with David Duke’s ultra-conservative views, but Danny Tarkanian couldn’t care less as long as it helps him rake in campaign cash,” said Nevada State Democratic Party spokesman Stewart Boss. “Danny has been hyping Donald Trump for months now despite his rampant bigotry, so this is just par for the course.”
