Republican Senate Candidate Hal Patton caught wearing blackface — He must go.
This week, news broke that Republican candidate for State Senate wore blackface while serving as an elected official.
What’s worse, instead of issuing a sincere apology, Hal Patton chose to make excuses, deflect, and attack his Democratic opponent Rachelle Aud Crowe with nonsense.
We already have one racist and xenophobe in the highest office of the land — we don’t need more to get elected in our important local government seats. It’s up to us to stop Hal Patton.
Sign the petition to tell Hal Patton to resign his candidacy: Racists have no place in the Illinois State Senate.
