The Missouri Republican Party said it’s trying to block a GOP candidate running for governor because of his ties to the Ku Klux Klan.

Republican Darrell Leon McClanahan III, of southwest Missouri’s Milo, filed for governor on Tuesday.

Former Rep. Shamed Dogan, R-Ballwin, posted information on social media this week about McClanahan and called on the party to reject McClanahan’s filing fee.

The GOP Party responded.

The Anti-Defamation League has posted about McClanahan and said it has been following his KKK affiliation for years.
