Let's Play "What if the shoe was on the other foot?"

Imagine (for a moment) if the following actually took place:

A Republican primary involving 4 white candidates and one candidate who is black. Historically the district they are all running for is a solid Republican district. However, the white candidates do not want a black candidate in the race, as it may "dilute" white power.
So the white candidates try to mobilize the state and national GOP against the lone black candidate and force them out of the race. "The New York City Republicans are in full support of the 11th congressional seat remaining a whites-only seat."
In reality, would the major press outlets be silent as they are on the real story of David Yassky and his candidacy to represent the 11th District in Congress? In all reality, Yassky doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell to win this race, but he should be "allowed" to get his butt kicked, despite his lack of skin color. What year is this anyway?

David Yassky's only other option may be to pull a "Patrick Kennedy".
