Yeah, it was way before the 1960's. You might find a KKK affiliated organization supporting a Maine republican or an Oregon politician or a hundred democrats but a political endorsement in the 1920's didn't translate to political victory. It was just an endorsement...or not. Democrats used the KKK for political muscle in the 40's and 50's and up until the 60's when the democrat party decided to use Black hatred for political anarchy. LBJ paid them back with the ironically named "great society" and Black families turned into wards of the state.
