Just days after the report emerged that the campaign of Robert Francis O'Rourke had ejected a Breitbart News reporter from an event at a college in South Carolina, the campaign has now claimed that it removed the reporter to protect black students, Breitbart reports.

O'Rourke's campaign secretary released a statement Wednesday claiming that while O'Rourke supports the free press, Breitbart "walks the line between being news and a perpetrator of hate speech."
