NDGOP Chairman Rips White Supremacist Who Endorsed Senate Candidate, Criticizes Forum for Publishing Letter

Fargo-based white supremacist Pete Tefft (who prefers to refer to himself as a “pro-white civil rights activist,” whatever that is) made a stir recently when he began posting social media messages supporting Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tom Campbell and criticizing Democratic incumbent Heidi Heitkamp.
