Controversial Republican candidate Arthur Jones will be the GOP’s nominee in a suburban Chicago congressional district after he ran unopposed in Tuesday’s primary.

Jones has courted controversy for not recognizing the Holocaust. His campaign website has a section called “The Holocaust Racket” where he argues that “there is no proof such a so-called” Holocaust ever took place anywhere in Europe against the Jews. He also claimed there that the Jews “are directly responsible for the murder of at least 300 million people.”

Jones also revealed in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times in February that he’s a former leader of the American Nazi Party.

In his website, too, Jones says he knows what it is “to do hard, honest and dirty work.” He also shares that he belongs to three unions, so he “knows the needs of American workers.”

He also highlights on his website his being a veteran, having fought and served in the Vietnam war as a combat infantryman with the U.S. Army from 1969-1971.

Jones also lists his stance on particular issues including his opposition to the sanctuary cities and amnesty for illegal aliens. He says he is also a pro-life advocate and he is not in favor of homosexual marriages and the adoption of children by homosexuals. He also gives his nod to the repeal of what he believes are treasonous trade treaties like the NAFTA or the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Jones also supports gun rights.

There are various reactions on Twitter about Jones’ candidacy.

The Republican Party has previously his couple of congressional bids. The state Republican Party has even disavowed his candidacy. The state party chairman also called him a Nazi. Democrats have, of course, also slammed Jones and condemned his views.

Jones will still be the party’s nominee, however, as the GOP decided against fielding any candidate in the solid Democratic district.

Jones will be up against either current Rep. Daniel Lipinski (D-Ill.) or advertising executive Marie Newman who’s offering a challenge to the incumbent Lipinski.
