The co-founder of Black Entertainment Television, Sheila Crump Johnson, endorsed Virginia Republican gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell on Monday.
We need bold and innovative leadership to move our state forward, and that's why I've chosen to support Bob McDonnell for governor, said Johnson, a Democrat, during remarks in Richmond, Va. He has shown me that he has the right vision and the executive leadership skills that will guide Virginia through these challenging times.
McDonnell, a former state attorney general, told POLITICO that he was thrilled to have the support of someone with Johnsons record as a supporter of free enterprise.
Thats exactly the message Ive been trying to foster, he said.

WTF this can’t be happening in Mr. Obama’s Hood?
This is excellent news.
I hope McDonnell’s campaign will make frequent use of it.
I think what you said says it all. Obama’s economy is not helping the African American community. It is only hurting it. I think we are seeing the beginning of a stampede off of the ‘RAT planation.
Is he a RINO? Steele has turned out to be a bit of a whiny RINO. I am not picking on African American RINOs since we have so many white RINOs or albino Rhinos (charlie crist before he tans). ;-)
I am starting to suspect that Babs Boxer’s treatment of Mr Alford of the Black Chamber of Commerce may have something in part to do with the coming backlash against the Democrats.
For those who don’t remember or never knew, back in the Reagan era, BET actually was fairly fair and balanced regarding conservative/liberal issues. They had at least one regular news talk show that composed entirely of Black Republicans discussing the issues of the day. I don’t know what happened in the ‘90s — Bill Clinton, I guess, but they lost their way in the victimization/booty-call storm.
You're correct. BET was sold to Viacom, and has been worthless ever siunce.
Amazing << Hear this. Feel this, and tell me that this isn't music.
Thanks for reminding me, I’d forgotten. Viacom went for the almighty dollar, which equals the lowest common denominator.
I disagree. Viacom has an agenda that is not about making a profit.
If it were they would be modeling their news programming on Fox.
