Breitbart News says it abandoned congressional candidate Paul Nehlen 
because of new information about the views of a man who describes 
himself as “pro-white.” Yet Nehlen's white nationalist sympathies are 
not recent discoveries; they were evident last year.

A more plausible explanation for Breitbart's move is political calculus. 
Stung by the special-election loss of U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore — 
whom the far-right website supported, despite accusations of sexual 
misconduct with teenage girls decades ago — Breitbart needs to align 
itself with politicians who can win to help regain the appearance of 
influence Moore’s defeat damaged. Nehlen, challenging Rep. Paul D. Ryan 
(R-Wis.) again after getting shellacked by the House speaker in a GOP 
primary in 2016, looks like a losing bet.
