Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner refused to follow Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz’s lead and call on voters of a Chicago-area congressional district to back a Democrat over a declared Nazi candidate in November.

Instead, Rauner on Tuesday called for Holocaust denier Arthur Jones to drop out of the race.

On Friday, Cruz urged residents of the district to write in a candidate or choose the Democrat — in this case, Rep. Dan Lipinski.

“This is horrific. An avowed Nazi running for Congress. To the good people of Illinois, you have two reasonable choices: write in another candidate, or vote for the Democrat,” Cruz wrote. “This bigoted fool should receive ZERO votes.”

Rauner declined to go that far.

“No,” Rauner answered when asked if voters should instead cast a ballot for Lipinski, according to WCIA TV. “The one thing I will say is the person, that guy, Johnson or whatever his name is, should not be on the ballot.”

In February, the governor said, “There is no room for neo-Nazis in American politics. I condemn this man in the strongest possible terms.”

Rauner on Tuesday said the party did what it could to stop Jones. “I called [on] him to get out and he should be out, and we should have somebody run against him,” Rauner said during a stop in central Illinois. “There is no room, as I said right immediately when he snuck on there, there is no room in our politics for a person like that.”

State Republicans have also said they will work to draft a write-in candidate for the general election.

The Illinois Republican Party has faced nationwide ridicule after failing to block Jones from claiming the GOP nomination in the state’s 3rd Congressional District. The party chair, Tim Schneider, was recently reelected to his position with Rauner’s backing.

Last week, POLITICO reported that the Illinois GOP, which Rauner nearly single-handedly bankrolls, had failed on four occasions to purge Jones from the ballot or put forward a challenger.

“I snookered them,” Jones boasted after learning the state GOP had failed to mount a third-party challenge.

The GOP said it would ultimately have taken too many resources to collect the more than 14,000 signatures needed to secure a third-party bid in a predominantly Democratic district. Before that, the GOP was unable to legally boot Jones from the ballot through a petition challenge, failed to draft a primary opponent or mount a primary write-in campaign.

Rauner, among the most endangered incumbent governors in the country, faces billionaire Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November in a race in which spending has already topped $200 million.

Nothing normalizes Naziism like calling normal people Nazis. The Democrats slapped the Nazi button so hard for so long that you can be a bona-fide Nazi now and get elected since the opposition just looks silly. The Democrats devalued the term into oblivion.

No, it's your vault for voting for a Nazi you fucking retard.

What level of holocaust denial are we talking here? Is this "official figures don't seem to add up" or full blown "the holocaust never happened, but I wish it did" level?
>>
>>266758
a tiny subset of easily fooled retards got him on the ballot and all others repudiate him

also he has no chance of winning anyway so this whole thing is an exercise in idiotic grandstanding by the democrats
>>
>>266760
>tiny subset
You mean the Republican base. They had every chance NOT to vote for a nazi. But they still did, this is entirely the Republicans fault, especially since they have a nazi sympathizer Donald 'good people on both sides' Trump in office.

This is your dishwashing liquid, you soak in it.

You antifaggots can stay bootybothered and complain that people don't care about being called "nazi" or "raayyccisss" anymore while we right the ship. Have a latte and stfu, hipster faggots.

Bad comparison, you can actually do that empirically using the shadow experiment, or the right angle experiment.

The mountains and mountains of documents, photos, newsreel footage, and other documented proof clearly don't measure up in the same way! It's totally possible to fake all of that!

The its okay to be white kinda holocaust denial probably.

Hmmm....

>>267190
anyone can get onto the ballot and anyone can win a primary if they're unopposed
>>
>>267201
The fact that local Republicans didn't field a candidate and the base still voted for the Nazi is pretty damning.
>>
>>267614
Nobody voted for him. He was unopposed. The last time he tried running he got about 10% of the votes
>>
>>267614
Although no votes are cast in an unopposed primary, I would unironically vote for anyone who says that American politics is dominated by a 'Jew party system'
>>
>>267615
>nobody voted for him
20,339 votes cast for him disagrees.

So is this the Republican version of that millenial socialist chick?

I prefer the one that's fuckable. All the Republican fringe candidates baked potatos.
