Tennessee Democratic Party disavows Senate nominee

Aug 3, 2012

The party of Cordell Hull, Estes Kefauver and Al Gore Sr. and Jr. won't have a standard-bearer - or at least not one it can stomach - in Tennessee's next U.S. Senate race.

Less than 24 hours after a man espousing conservative and libertarian views surprised the state's political scene by winning the Democratic nomination, the Tennessee Democratic Party disavowed him, saying he's part of an anti-gay hate group.

The party said Friday that it would do nothing to help Mark Clayton, 35, who received nearly twice as many votes as his closest challenger in Thursday's seven-candidate primary, winning the right to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Corker in November.

Clayton defended his work for Public Advocate of the United States, the pro-life, pro-marriage group in question, and said he was disappointed with the Tennessee Democratic Party's "zero-sum politics."

"It's not necessarily surprising, unfortunately," he said in a phone interview. "But that's not the way I deal with my political opponents. I have good friends who are liberals."
