LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A U.S. Senate write-in candidate’s appearance at the University of Kentucky was cut short when he advocated his white supremacist philosophy at an event attended by a group of high school journalism students.

Media reports say the candidate, Robert Ransdell of Florence in northern Kentucky, left the stage after the power was cut to his microphone at the Constitution Day event on Wednesday.

According to a video of the event, Ransdell spoke about the curse of diversity and the need for a white-supremacy movement.

UK spokeswoman Kathy Johnson says the university was not aware of the content of his remarks prior to his speech.

Ransdell’s political platform is widely available with a Google search.
