Rick Tyler, who is running as an independent, says he put the sign up along US Highway 411 near Benton. He told WRCB-TV that he doesn’t hate “people of color,” but wants to return to an earlier time “when there were no break-ins; no violent crime; no mass immigration.”
He also posted a sign with an image of the White House surrounded by Confederate flags.
Tyler is one of three independent candidates running for the seat now held by Chuck Fleischmann, a Republican, who faces both Republican and Democratic contenders.
The primary election is Aug. 4.
