As Super Tuesday results roll in showing Donald Trump extending his lead in the race for the GOP nomination, People For the American Way (PFAW) President Michael Keegan made the following statement:

“Sadly, tonight Donald Trump moved even closer to winning the Republican nomination. His campaign has been based on enflaming the currents of bigotry and intolerance that GOP leaders have exploited for years in more subtle ways. Now he’s become the face of the Republican Party.

“Donald Trump embodies the irresponsible extremism that has come to define the Republican Party as we know it. It’s disturbing to watch the rest of the Republican field continue to try to out-Trump Trump on critical issues like immigration reform and reproductive rights when they should be using the opportunity to take a clear stand against the dangerous policies that Trump is pushing.”
