RIALTO, Calif. (AP) — A white supremacist is running for a Southern California school board seat.
Dan Schruender, a past president of the California chapter of Aryan Nations, filed nomination papers Monday with the San Bernardino County registrar to run for one of two open seats on the inland Rialto Unified School District.
The 27,500-student district is nearly 76 percent Hispanic and nearly 16 percent black.
On Tuesday, Schruender announced his campaign on an Aryan Nations blog. He says the group is not behind his candidacy, and he will not allow his ideology to affect his decisions if elected on Nov. 2.
