Cruz: Do not vote as a "declared Nazi" acting as a Republican



Arthur Jones ran unchallenged as a Republican candidate in the district of Chicago. His campaign website – with a section entitled "Holocaust?" – Since the 1970s, the Anti-Defamation League has been involved in anti-Semitic and racist groups.

"This is horrible, a declared Nazi candidate for Congress For the good people of Illinois, you have two sensible choices: Write another candidate or vote for the Democrat, this bigoted idiot should get zero votes", Cruz, a Texas Republican, wrote on Twitter.

Politico reported Friday that the Republican Party of Illinois could no longer run a third party candidate as the deadline passed this week.

"You have not submitted a third-party candidate?" Jones asked a Politico reporter during a phone call. "That's great! That's awesome!"

Jones went on to say that he "snookered" the Illinois GOP, according to Politico.

Earlier this year, the Republican Party of Illinois condemned Jones's campaign and said there was "no room for Nazis like Arthur Jones" in the GOP or in the country.

"The Republican Party of Illinois and our country have no room for Nazis like Arthur Jones, and we are strongly opposed to his racist views and candidacy for any public office, including the 3rd Congressional District," said the Republican Party chairman Illinois, Tim Schneider, previously in a statement.

In November, Jones will face the Democratic incumbent, Rep. Dan Lipinski.

Lipinski is an anti-abortion Democrat who has lived in the district for more than a decade. He is strongly favored to win.
