Neo-Nazi Republican Patrick Little Gets 1.2% In California Senate Primary

Patrick Little, an open anti-Semite running as a Republican, finished 12th in California’s primary for U.S. Senate.

Little, who briefly placed on top of a poll of the little-known GOP field, had 53,632 votes, with more than 90% of precincts reporting.

Little, who has called for a government “free from Jews,” scored a surprising second place in one pre-election poll, behind incumbent Jewish Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

He was condemned by the California Republican Party and banned from their convention.

Feinstein won the top-two “jungle primary and will face fellow Democrat Kevin De Leon in November. James Bradley, the top Republican, got just 8% of the votes, meaning no GOP candidate will be on the ballot in the fall for the race.
