Black and Red All Over

Reading about the recent meeting of Alabama's black Republican caucus, I began to wonder if there are any elected black Republicans in the state.

The article mentions Johnny Ford who switched parties and was promptly elected mayor of Tuskegee. But Ford has never actually been on the ballot a Republican. He switched to the GOP only after his 2002 re-election and mayoral elections are conducted on a nonpartisan basis.

The article mentions Juan Chastang as well, but he of course was recently appointed to the Mobile County Commission and given the fallout from his selection I don't think many would feel confident about his chances of being elected to a full term.

So on that note I tried to figure out if there are any black Alabamians elected as Republicans at any level of government. This would include not only statewide races, but also all 140 legislative seats, circuit and judicial judgeships, county commission seats, circuit clerks, probate judge and any other partisan position in the state.

I've checked with friends on both side of the aisle and nobody can seem to point be to a black Alabamian elected as a Republican. I've got a call in to the AL GOP so we'll see if they get back to me.

Ben Little is a black city council member in Anniston who is Republican isn't he? Not sure if he ran as a Republican, but I heard he is one.

City council members are usually elected in nonpartisan races. So even though he may be a Republican, that's not exactly what I was going for.

However, District Judgeships are partisan elections, Eric Fancher might be our answer.

I appreciate both responses. I'll check into both of them further.

i think it is pretty sad that you have to do all this searching to find a black republican. by the way are they any minority elected republican officials? I do not think so. when you go to a republican meeting it is all white men and women. mostly men

it is sad you have to look under rocks for minority repubs. but that merely reflects the democrat dominance and govt monopoly of blacks. blacks got a stockholm syndrome with democrats and they are further repressed by the black elected democrats who pay them off at election time with street money. of course white democrats do the same thing and give blacks money for street votes too.
Only when blacks sever the dependency and think for themselves will we see a visible black republican.
