David Duke, a former leader of the white supremacist Ku Klux Klan, announced his candidacy on Friday for the U.S.
Senate from Louisiana, saying while he believes in equal rights for all Americans he demands respect for "European Americans." Duke, 66, is a former Louisiana state legislator and unsuccessful Republican candidate for governor who served a 15-month federal prison sentence after pleading guilty in 2002 to charges of tax evasion and mail fraud.
"I believe in equal rights for all and respect for all Americans," Duke said in a video posted on his website.
