GOP Hopes to Add Black Lawmakers to House:
The Republican Party is hoping to build its ranks of Black lawmakers in the House, with one candidate expected to win in a safe GOP district and a handful of others in competitive races, following the planned retirement of its sole current Black member.
Republicans made increasing diversity among their ranks a priority this election cycle. Sixty-four Black GOP candidates ran for the House this fall, with about half making it to the general election, according to a senior Republican aide.
The Republicans’ best bet in the House is Byron Donalds, a Naples, Fla.-based state lawmaker who has aligned himself closely with President Trump, casting himself to voters as “a strong, Trump-supporting, gun-owning, liberty-loving, pro-life, politically incorrect Black man.” After winning a hotly contested primary, he is on track to win his race next week in the heavily Republican district. He faces Democrat Cindy Banyai, a consultant and college instructor.
Mr. Donalds got his start in politics working with the local tea party groups and writing a newsletter for former presidential candidate Herman Cain, and was elected to the state legislature in 2016. There, he has focused on criminal justice reform and improving the state’s education system.
“I didn’t get into politics to get into the mold of what a Black person is supposed to be in politics,” he said in an interview. Mr. Donalds recently quarantined in his home after he tested positive for the coronavirus and sat out a campaign event he was scheduled to attend with Mr. Trump. He restarted campaign events this week. --->READ MORE HERE
