Ted Howze from Modesto, California has lost support of GOP leaders over derogatory online posts about Muslims and Hillary Clinton. Howze says he did not write them.
Howze, who is facing Democrat Josh Harder in the 10th District, lost the support of the California Republican Party and the campaign arm of House Republicans, the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Howze said he is the target of “maliciously false attacks” and intends to continue his campaign. He said the posts “do not resemble anything close to my personal words or actions.” but that didn’t change the minds of GOP leaders who still rescinded their endorsement.
