Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Black Republicans

This New York Times story focuses, briefly, on the increasing number of black Republicans either running--or thinking about running--for the Senate or for governor of their states. Lynn Swann, Ken Blackwell, Keith Butler, and Michael Steele, are among those mentioned. Donna Brazile says that "this is a very challenging moment for Democrats." Ken Blackwell, the Secreteray of State of Ohio, explains how well the vote in Ohio went in 2004. Project 21, a black conservative organization, is already weighing in the Supreme Court opening. Peter Kirsanow, a member of Project 21 said this: "I’m confident that the President will nominate someone with integrity and wisdom who understands that the proper role of a Supreme Court justice is to interpret the text of the Constitution, rather than, as Justice Thomas put it, promote ’the faddish slogans of the cognoscenti.’"

This indeed sounds dire for the Dems. These are serious people, not "stunt" candidates like the once-serious but now rather self-parodic Alan Keyes.
