I know the basics of his bio — accomplished CEO, talk-radio host, cancer survivor — but not much more beyond that. Even so, it got my attention a few days ago when he won Red State’s 2012 “tournament,” topping Mike Pence in the semifinal and Palin in the final. Is that because Cain’s a Red State favorite or is the grassroots support for him out there broader than anyone realizes […]
In an earlier story we had mentioned that there were 32 African-Americans running under the Republican Banner during the 2010 Primary.
Although Most of the News has been about Florida’s Allen West and South Carolina’s Tim Scott, there are 12 other black GOP candidates looking to make history in this year’s midterms:

Herman Cain is many things, including an African American Republican, a former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, a cancer survivor — and the host of a popular radio show in Georgia. Recently, a “Draft Cain” movement has emerged, with the goal of drafting Cain into a presidential […]
Nearly thirty-two African-Americans are running this election season as Republicans. If you only watched the mainstream media, you would think there were only three: South Carolinas’ Tim Scott, Allen West of Florida, and Republican strategist Angela McGlowan of Mississippi. But there are 28 others who are running under the banner of Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the most since reconstruction. Many are running in the deep south and maybe I shouldn’t use this word, but the south appears to be more “progressive” than its northern neighbors.
Many of the candidates have been endorsed by their local teaparties and the always controversial former Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. Maybe that is the reason the media isn’t reporting on these candidates, their endorsements from the tea party movement doesn’t jive with their premise that the movement is racist because of their disagreement with President Obama’s policies. Maybe the real truth is the tea parties descent is about ideology and not the color of Obama’s skin.
The New York Times took a look at the many candidates of African descent who are running under the Republican banner. We have added the names of the candidates and a link to each so one can learn more about each of the candidate running this election season.

What makes it all the better is both won in a landslide. Nikki Haley beat a sitting congressman and Tim Scott beat one of the best known Senators name, Thurmond. The can be no doubt that two things are true. The […]
South Carolina GOP governor’s nominee Nikki Haley. South Carolina state Rep. Nikki Haley cruised to the Republican nomination for governor tonight, a victory that makes her not just the frontrunner for the office this fall but a likely national GOP star. Haley crushed Rep. Gresham Barrett in the runoff race, an expected result given that she took 49 percent of the June 8 primary vote — narrowly missing the chance […]

President Lincoln emancipated Blacks and was partially responsible for 3 amendments to the Constitution, although they were ratified after his death. A Republican was the President when troops were sent to allow Blacks to attend a white school? To many peoples surprise, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and most of his family a member of the Republican party. It was southern Democrats who were the majority members of groups like the Klu Klux Klan.
