Dr. Duke Announcement quotes:
"After the outpouring of overwhelming support I am proud to announce my candidacy for the United States Senate.
"I believe in equal rights for all and respect for all Americans; however, what makes me different is that I also demand respect for the rights and heritage of European Americans. I passed the only bill in America forbidding Affirmative Action programs that racially discriminate against the best qualified.
"Thousands of special interest groups stand up for African Americans, Mexican Americans, Jewish Americans. The fact is that European Americans need at least one man in the U.S. Senate who will defend their rights and heritage.
"Stop the massive immigration and the ethnic cleansing of the people whose forefathers created America.
"I was the first major candidate in modern times to promote the term and policy of America First. We cannot have free trade without FAIR TRADE. Protect American jobs and business.
"Total Campaign Reform: Time to end all political PAC money and control of politics by the Oligarchs of finance and media.
"We must enforce anti-trust laws to break up the huge anti-American media conglomerates.
"The NY Times admits that my platform became the GOP mainstream and propelled Republicans to control Congress. They sold us out. I am overjoyed to see Donald Trump and most Americans embrace most of the issues that I have championed for years. My slogan remains America First. I always said equal rights for all, special interests for none. I have opposed the wars that lead our nation to disaster. I have supported fair trade.
"The people of Louisiana and America must have at least one man in the Senate who will stand up for us."
