Larry Elder Attended Conference With White Nationalists in 2017
In SummaryGOP Candidate to replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom attended a conference where white nationalists spoke.
Republican Larry Elder, who’s vying to replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) in Tuesday’s recall election, spoke at a conservative conference that featured white nationalists.
Elder attended 2017’s “Summer of Conservative” conference that featured speeches from Kyle Chapman and Johnny Benitez. According to reports, Benitez and Chapman espoused white nationalist ideals in their speeches.
Elder was not in the room when the speeches were made, HuffPost reported. He was, however, on a panel with Chapman where they discussed placing a 10-year moratorium on all immigration.
“He is a Black man from South Central who doesn’t subscribe to the mainstream media’s narrative of racial grievance or your misguided notions of systemic racism,” Elder’s communication manager Ying Ma told HuffPost. “Instead of examining your own delusions, you look for every opportunity possible to paint him as a white nationalist sympathizer. It’s absurd.”
