BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Members of an anti-hate group say they have bought property in the southwestern North Dakota town of Leith, which a white supremacist has targeted for a takeover.

UnityND leader Jeremy Kelly of Bismarck tells The Bismarck Tribune that he and three others have bought four lots from the town's mayor, including one with a home.

Craig Cobb has been buying property in the town of 24 people and recruiting others with white power views to come there so he can create a voting majority and take control.

Kelly says members of his group want to help tip the balance against Cobb.

Cobb tells The Associated Press that he feels he's being harassed and that he's not deterred.
