Fargo-area Republicans vote to expel white nationalist Tefft
Feb. 23, 2018
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo-area Republicans have voted to expel white supremacist Peter Tefft.
KFGO-AM reports that Legislative District 21 Republicans said Thursday that Tefft's views and actions "prove he does not believe in the principals of the party."
Tefft rallied with white nationalists at the Charlottesville, Virginia, march that resulted in one death and numerous injuries. He drew national attention afterward when his father publicly disavowed his "avowed white nationalist" son. He made but dropped plans to organize a pro-white rally in Fargo.
District 21 Republican Chair Conner Swanson says "a self-described fascist has no place" in the party, and that the District 21 GOP won't become "a platform for troubled and vile beliefs."
Tefft tweeted in response that he's going to continue to support the North Dakota GOP and the Trump agenda.
