SMYRNA, Ga. (AP) Like an eager date, Leo Smith showed up at Mount Zion First Baptist Church with a bouquet of flowers in hand.
He wasn't seeking romance. He was seeking voters.
As the minority engagement director for the Georgia Republican Party, Smith is helping to lead an effort to recruit African-American voters in pivotal states, a priority for a heavily white party staring with uncertainty at a country that is fast becoming more brown.

Struggles. Nice word.
Article is racist.
JESSE J. HOLLAND is Black Slaver, intent on keeping the House & Field slaves on the Democrat Plantation!
If conservatives “struggle” it’s because of lying and twisted history that obscures the truth. And the AP is a master at it.
Recruit good, conservative candidates and let the racial mixture sort itself out. Most Black Conservatives do not want to run for office.
Yes. It is.
I’ll say it. Most blacks have been bought off with freebies, government jobs and such in exchange for a Democrat vote and at this point it is second nature.
I see very little critical thinking involved.
Give it up. They aint buyin it. Neither are the Mexicans.
GIVE IT UP ALREADY.
If they were masters, then they would not make the lies so transparent.
Just run as dems.
After the way Democrips treated Mia Love in Utah, its no wonder. The stuff they sent her was disgusting
You’d get ALOT more votes from opposing “Affirmative Action” . . making crime and drugs a campaign issue again, opposing The Welfare State
If they won’t vote GOP now they never will. Forget them, they are the Demonrats’ cancer
It is a struggle as we have had to work uphill due to the Democrats owning the false media narritive for the last 40 years...
Time to pull this story out again. Its an easy template when a lazy reporter doesn’t have anything else to write about. They don’t even need to change anything other than the date. It goes hand in hand with the story, that comes in roughly September of an election year, that GOP operatives think they are going to make significant inroads with the black vote this year.
We would be much better off working to secure the Conservative base and making sure they go to the polls and vote right.
Conservatives who stayed home in 2012 gave us Obama again.
I think Obama won 2012 with 100% or more of registered voter turnout in key districts.
What exactly did the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965 accomplish?
Are the passage of those Civil Rights acts really something that should be promoted by the Republicans?
Why? Are they prejudiced? Maybe they don't like whites?
No. They get a ration of grief and called “Uncle Tom”.
Republicans should try to recruit the tens of millions of eligible white voters that never bother to go to the polls because they think they aren’t represented by the two major political parties.
Exactly! What did the so called Civil Rights act accomplish? And about those so called ‘civil rights’ Do whites have these civil rights?
How does this whole race thing work?
Whoa! Look at all those stealth GOP voters!
It is spending $60 million to court black voters, and a new initiative aims to recruit 300 women and 200 minorities to run for state and local office.
Really? Are they going to make a donation to the Black Caucus or NAACP or what?
Once some freepers were holding a demonstration in front of the UN and the traffic on First Avenue was at a standstill. A black couple in a car were watching us. Some of the demonstrators started shouting thing to them, like “School choice!” They shook their heads no. I can’t remember the other attempts to gain their favor. Then some young woman yelled “The right to defend yourself!”
That’s when they broke out into smiles and shot their fists into the air, to the roars and cheers from the conservatives.
(I can’t even remember what we were protesting. It wasn’t gun rights. That was in the summer of 2001.)
13 percent of the populace cause 80 percent of the problems.
On my way to the dentist today, I witnessed a negro man walking with a white woman.
The negro was visibly agitated, and turned around, started yelling at the woman, and eventually punched her in the face.
I called 911.
The GOP needs to concentrate on running Conservative candidates in hopes of turning out the 4-5 million Conservatives that supposedly stayed home in 2012.
Yup, it's the voters' fault.
I love that rationale, Karl Rove.
#1 'We suck less,' may seem like a good platform for the RNC to run on each cycle, but it isn't one I'll vote for.
#2 Running against an anti-gun, rabid pro-abort, pro-socialized medicine incumbent that oversaw the sodomy and murder of a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans all the while denying military intervention, two months before the election, an increase in gas prices of nearly $2 a gallon over the course of his term, an increase in the real unemployment rate, in a dismal economy - should've been an easy win.........unless you're the Stupid Party:
Then you run an Etch-a-Sketch candidate that switches parties, favors abortion, socialized medicine, and is anti-gun and didn't carry either state he called "home"
The RNC's spineless, unprincipled, douchebag candidates and Rovian lapdog supporters handed 0bama another term when they ran his photo-negative.
- Hint: Sucking that bad is not the voters' fault.
Go tell Karl he needs to come up with better talking points and a bigger dry erase board.......these ones are getting kind of tired and no one's buying it.
>> walking with
Walking with, or walking ahead of?
We’re you there?
You are correct, he was walking in front of her.
No, just imagining the scene.
I first thought the assailant was along side, but further in your description you indicated he turned around. I wasn’t sure if he was a stranger or company to the woman.
If the GOOPers only had your wisdom.
As far as I’m concerned, the Republican Party is struggling to recruit conservative voters and candidates.
They seemed to be a couple, unfortunately for her.
That's false; Carol Moseley Braun was elected to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat in 1992.
I didn’t make the graphic but you’re correct. She left in 99.
Chasing the Black or Hispanic vote is a waste of time energy and money. 68% of Americas is White - the morons in the GOP won’t see this until it’s too late. Good bye GOP I’ll never vote for you again.
