Rick Tyler holds "Make America white again" campaign event in Cleveland

Rick Tyler campaign event

Rick Tyler held a campaign event outside of the Cleveland Daily Banner Monday afternoon along side a large "Make American White Again" billboard.

It's a replica of the billboard Tyler put up in Polk County over the summer that caused controversy nationwide.

Tyler is running for Tennessee's third congressional district.

Monday, he announced his intentions for the sign.

"It is on wheels, it is on a trailer and I intend to travel the district and use this sign as a means of communicating this message, which I believe is so important," Tyler said.

He says the billboard controversy hurt his ability to campaign for this term, so Tyler announced he will be running for the same seat in 2018.
