Hundreds of people marched through New Orleans streets Saturday to protest the gubernatorial candidacy of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Duke's rival labeled him an inept legislator. About 500 people carried signs, chanted slogans and sang, "We're off to stop the wizard." Duke, a state Republican representative who has been disowned by President Bush and other GOP leaders, was grand wizard of the klan in the late 1970s and was a Nazi sympathizer.
