WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican National Committee (RNC) is not taking Tim Kaine’s Ku Klux Klan comments lying down.

“Tim Kaine sunk to new lows with dirty and deplorable attacks which have no place in this campaign. No matter how desperate he is to distract from his running mate Hillary Clinton’s litany of corruption scandals, there is no excuse for these vile and baseless smears,” Reince Priebus said in a statement.

Kaine in Florida Friday said the following about Donald Trump:

He has supporters like David Duke, connected with the Ku Klux Klan, who are going around and saying Donald Trump is their candidate, because Donald Trump is pushing their values.

Ku Klux Klan values, David Duke values, Donald Trump values are not American values. They’re not our values.
