BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Alabama Democrats should get rid of a candidate who denies the Holocaust and another who has advocated killing illegal immigrants, activist Al Sharpton said Monday.

Larry Darby, seeking the party‘s nomination for attorney general, denies the Holocaust occurred and recently spoke at a gathering of National Vanguard, which describes itself as a “pro-white” organization.

State party chairman Joe Turnham said both are “so far out” that neither has a shot at winning and to attempt to remove them from the ballot at this point could provide ammunition for a legal challenge.
