Woman Charged with Murder in Crash that Killed White Supremacist

A Newport woman now faces a murder charge after a drunk driving crash that killed a Florence man.

Ransdell, of Florence, drew attention in 2014 when he ran for U.S. Senate as a write-in candidate. His slogan, "With Jews We Lose" generated national media attention. In 2015, he was arrested in Florence during a Martin Luther King Day event.
