PHOENIX (AP) – The state’s Republican governor and party chairman called Thursday for the resignation of a state lawmaker who said “there aren’t enough white kids to go around” when discussing integration in schools.

Rep. David Stringer, also a Republican, said his political opponents “have taken 51 seconds out of a 16 minute speech to try to distort my message and mislead voters” and he’s “not interested in taking the fake news bait.”

Stringer’s speech Monday at the Yavapai County Republican Men’s Forum was live-streamed on Facebook and was available to watch on his campaign page. It was later removed. But a clip widely circulated on social media by a Democrat showed Stringer talking about how immigration is changing the demographic makeup of the country.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Sixty percent of public school children in the state of Arizona today are minorities. That complicates racial integration because there aren’t enough white kids to go around,” Stringer said in the speech. “If we don’t do something about immigration very, very soon, the demographics of our country will be irrevocably changed and we will be a very different country and we will not be the country you were born into.”

According to the report, Arizona GOP chairman Jonathan Lines said Thursday that he’s calling on Stringer “to resign immediately,” saying his words “have no place in our party, or in our state.”

Gov. Doug Ducey reportedly agreed with Chairman Lines.
