2020 saw Black voters and candidates alike turn out in droves. From Sen. Raphael Warnock’s (D) successful campaign in Georgia to Jaime Harrison’s unsuccessful Senate campaign in South Carolina, it seemed Black voters and candidates were lining up on the left.
But while the Democratic Party tends to have a lock on Black voters, that bloc is not a monolith. And Black Republicans are confident their ranks will continue growing ahead of the midterms and the 2024 presidential election.
The article goes on to state the following:
“So many Black Americans have been raised in a conservative way,” said Paris Dennard, national spokesperson and director of Black media affairs for the Republican National Committee. “When you think about Black conservatism, that is being a strong family. That’s having a lot of faith, being able to work hard and have a strong and safe community.”
The report notes that Black voters’ support for Republican candidates has risen from 12 percent in November to 27 percent now.
According to Dennard, over 160 Black Republicans filed to run for office over the past year, and 120 are still in the race. Over 80 Black Republicans filed to run for US Congress.
Below are just a few currently running for office:

Royce White, a Black Republican in Minnesota, is running against Rep. Ilhan Omar. He tweeted Monday:
America must continue to be a bastion of freedom for the entire world. We are a nation of shopkeepers. Alongside the 2nd amendment, we are a unique safeguard against economic imperialism and tyranny. Stop trading freedom to a super state for security and materialism. #Godspeed.
We cannot have freedom without self-governance. We cannot have self-governance without National Honor and Sacred Honor. We don’t want law and order, we want peace and order — Peace happens when man submits his passion to his reason and his reason to God.
