    MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Democratic candidate for governor Brett Hulsey plans to hand out white Ku Klux Klan hoods to Wisconsin Republicans to highlight what he says are their racist policies.

    Hulsey on Thursday came into the state Capitol press room to show off a white hood he says he made with his daughter’s sewing machine using curtain material he purchased for $1.

    Hulsey, a state representative from Madison, is running a long-shot campaign for the Democratic nomination against the better funded and more broadly supported candidate Mary Burke.

    Hulsey says he will attempt to hand out the KKK hoods to Republicans as they gather Friday for the state party convention in Milwaukee.

    State GOP executive director Joe Fadness calls it a “reprehensible, vile stunt” that should outrage everyone.
