Robert Ransdell, a write-in candidate for US Senate from Kentucky, is campaigning with the slogan “With Jews we lose.”
Campaign lawn signs with the slogan began appearing in the Cincinnati suburb of Florence, Ky., in recent days. Ransdell said his campaign has posted about 20 signs and plans 200 more in the weeks ahead.
“Online we have had a lot of positive feedback,” Ransdell told WLWT, a TV news station in Cincinnati. “Like I said, we’re going to find out what kind of feedback we get once we go out and take it to the people here in the state of Kentucky.”
I believe that there is no such thing as racial equality. You see that in our cities everyday,” he told the news channel.
As of Wednesday evening, the signs were gone as the candidate did not ask property owners’ permission to place them.
The major-party candidates in the race are Republican Mitch McConnell, the incumbent and the Senate’s minority leader, and Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes. Neither is Jewish.
