Whitehouse and his family are longtime members of Bailey’s Beach Club, which is formally known as Spouting Rock Beach Association.
In an interview Friday with local news site GoLocal Prov, Whitehouse was asked whether the club has any non-White members.
A Whitehouse spokesman said Monday that Bailey’s Beach Club has “no such restrictive policy” regarding the race or ethnicity of its members.
It was unclear Monday whether Whitehouse had at some point said he would leave the club.
“The Senator did not say that,” Davidson said in a statement when asked whether Whitehouse had pledged to leave the club in 2006.
