American Third Position Party candidate Harry Bertram, who got 0.35% of the vote for Governor of West Virginia in the recent special election, ran a controversial ad in the campaign’s closing days that proclaimed him to be the “voice for white American issues,” according to WTOV channel 9.
Excerpts from the news story:
“We’re against affirmative action and against illegal aliens coming into this country and they’re displacing white workers and eventually the white population,” said Bertram.
“In my opinion I see him putting his race first,” said Keith Wesley.
Wesley added, “I can’t believe that, this day and age it’s running like that.”
Others said Bertram’s view did not make sense.
“I don’t think that in West Virginia especially, illegal immigrants are at the top of our priority list on issues,” said Jamie Braunlich.
“Well it will generate interest but, then again I didn’t expect to get their support anyway, those people that are other than the white heritage,” said Bertram.
“Oh to me he is bringing it back years. We’re trying to go forward and to me he is going backwards,” said Wesley.
