California Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman announced on Saturday that she is severing ties with Bob Kellar, a Santa Clarita Councilman.
At a recent Whitman rally in southern California, Bob Kellar blamed illegal immigrants for harming the economy.
“As President Theodore Roosevelt once said, the United States has one flag and one language — English.” Kellar told the crowd.
Democrats called on Whitman to distance herself from Kellar. The Whitman campaign agreed and disavowed Kellar’s comments.
