The Charles Barron-Hakeem Jeffries Congressional race in the new 8th Congressional District took a bizarre turn on Friday in response to an endorsement by former Ku Klux Klan leader and white supremacist David Duke.

In a video posted on YouTube, Duke said that although he had issues with the two candidates — both of them black — he would rather have a black candidate who is “a dedicated anti-Zionist,” meaning Barron, than one who is “a complete Zionist sellout,” meaning Jeffries.
