BOSTON--Campaigners for David Duke left the office of Gov. William F. Weld '66 empty-handed yesterday when they came seeking his signature in their drive to get the former Ku Klux Klan leader's name on the primary ballot.
Supporters are trying to collect signatures from 2500 registered voters by tomorrow to guarantee the Republican presidential candidate's name will be included on the GOP ballot.
"We were led to believe that he would sign the petition," said Howell Farrell, Duke's national campaign director.
But the governor, in an interview with WBZ-TV, said he has no interest in signing the petition.
"He should have the right to try to get on the ballot," Weld said. "But I ain't signing no Duke papers."
