    There is certainly no denying the historical significance of Tuesday's victories by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) in South Carolina and Congresswoman-Elect Mia Love (R-UT) in Utah, but the most surprising and politically significant for the GOP came in Texas' 23rd District, with Will Hurd ousting Democratic Party incumbent Pete Gallegos. Will Hurd's triumph not only makes him the first black Republican member of congress from the Lone Star State since Reconstruction, but is impressive in that he took out a sitting Democrat in a predominately minority district. In a district with a 55 percent Latino population and median annual income...

    Growing up in a black neighborhood in Oakland, California pretty much guaranteed that I was destined to be a Democrat. As a child whatever exposure I was given to politics had a simple message, Democrats are good and Republicans are bad. When I became a teenager I accept this as gospel and when Barack Obama was elected President this confirmed all I had been taught and was excited to become old enough to one day follow in his footsteps and be a strong Democrat to fight the good fight and bring social justice to black folks all over. However, in...

    Third Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Jonesboro, Illinois September 15, 1858 MR. DOUGLAS' SPEECH. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: I appear before you today in pursuance of a previous notice, and have made arrangements with Mr. Lincoln to divide time, and discuss with him the leading political topics that now agitate the country. Prior to 1854 this country was divided into two great political parties known as Whig and Democratic. These parties differed from each other on certain questions which were then deemed to be important to the best interests of the Republic. Whig and Democrats differed about a bank, the...

    Black Republican: Black Caucus preaches victimization and dependency By Gautham Nagesh - 11/20/10 05:23 PM ET Congressman-elect Allen West (R-Fla.), who said he plans to become the only black Republican in the Congressional Black Caucus, accused the organization of failing the black community by promoting dependence on government welfare programs. "The Congressional Black Caucus cannot continue to be a monolithic voice that promotes these liberal social welfare policies and programs that are failing in the Black community, that are preaching victimization and dependency, that's not the way that we should go," West said on Fox News Friday. "And those are...

    GRAND RAPIDS --State Sen. Bill Hardiman, R-Kentwood, will run for the congressional seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Vern Ehlers, R-Grand Rapids. He was announcing his decision today. "West Michigan has a history of sending conservative, thoughtful representatives to Congress such as President Ford, Paul Henry and Vern Ehlers," Hardiman said. "They carried themselves with dignity and integrity. I'm a thoughtful conservative and am excited about running for this seat." Hardiman's announcement ensures at least a three-way primary, but the field could get crowded with other Republicans still seriously considering jumping into the 3rd Congressional District race. "If I am...

    As for Smiths future, the press secretary says shes toying with the idea of running for office in Arkansas one day. Her fans are already one step ahead of her. The Facebook fan group Draft Princella for U.S. Congress is steadily gaining names of voters who want Smith to run against Rep. Berry, the incumbent in her home district. I think in the long run she will be an elected official, says Gingrich. Her desire to serve people and her passionate interest in public policy make her somebody who will run for office.

    The Making of a Mayor By Jay Nordlinger Friends, there is a very interesting mayor in San Ramon, Calif., some 40 miles east of San Francisco. His name is H. Abram Wilson. I talked to him the other day by phone (from New York), not in the Bay Area, alas. Not every American is entitled to perfect weather and beautiful surroundings. You might like to get to know Wilson a little. I thought I would write him up, Impromptus-style: in bulleted bites. . Wilson is running for reelection again and he is again running unopposed. Next year, he...

    Last week Glenn got a call from a very impressive young man named Jerome Hudson, who told Glenn he had written an op-ed during the 2008 election on being a black conservative. He sent it in and it's fantastic. Enjoy! While attending a black fraternity party, I recently learned its a bad idea to profess ones affinity for Glenn Beck, Bill OReilly, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity. Worse, according to current polls, it appears I may be the only black 22 year old in America who will be voting for Sen. John McCain. Its not that I was unaware that...

    What about Angry Black Man? :Please excuse my writing skills. I am not a writer and I am not attempting to pass myself off as one. I just enjoy sharing my mind.: There was a op-ed piece titled, In election 2008, dont forget Angry White Man, written by Gary Hubbell, a columnist with the Aspen Times Weekly. In column Mr. Hubbell described the attributes of The Angry White Man, basically stating that the Angry White Man isn't being represented in this election period. Not that I totally disagree with this notion, but Mr. Hubbell alienates all of the Angry White...

  • For Blackwell and Swann, 2006 May Be Different

    For almost two decades, national GOP leaders handpicked black sacrificial lamb candidate in races no Republican could win. Those candidates generally got the 10-15 percent of the black vote white Republicans garner. But 2006 may be different. Ken Blackwell in Ohio and Lynn Swann in Pennsylvania lead polls of Republicans in advance of spring primaries. Both are mega-swing states where the governorship is what matters since the chief executive controls patronage, judicial appointments and multibillion-dollar budgets. The key for the Republican Party's future is not so much whether Blackwell and Swann win in November - although that would be a...

    The Real Issue Is Turnout - Ralph Conner All American citizens of good will can see the value in encouraging Black voters to break through their voting lethargy and apathy--without using allegations of institutionalized racism as an excuse for self-disenfranchisement, failing to vote when you have the rock-solid right to do so. Last April, in my own bid for re-election as mayor of Maywood, Illinois, turnout was less than 25 percent in a community that is 90 percent African-American. It disturbs me deeply to know only one-quarter of the eligible voters in my community chose to exercise this essential right....

    Marylands Michael Steele and the courage of the black Republican. As a black Republican, Michael Steele is used to taunts and attacks. Over the years, he has developed skin that is not only black but thick as well. "I'm not an elephant for nothing," he notes. Steele, the lieutenant governor of Maryland, will need that elephant's skin for the campaign he has just launched. He's running for the U.S. Senate, hoping to succeed Democrat Paul Sarbanes, who is retiring after five terms. On the day he announced his Senate candidacy, all hell broke loose. Steve Gilliard is a popular blogger...

    <....snip....> What a condescending remark - but what a useful example of liberal racism. Mention the words "liberal" and "racism" in one sentence in a classroom at one of the nation's most elite universities, and you'll get blank stares. For a lot of people on the left, the phrase is an oxymoron. They really don't seem to know what it means. How can liberals be racist? How can people dedicated to promoting tolerance be guilty of intolerance?
