Black GOP Candidates Running for Congress

Published by Pamela Gentry on Thursday, April 1, 2010 at 2:06 am.

April 1, 2010 – Have you ever heard of Tim Scott, Ryan Frazier or Les Phillips?  Well they belong to a group of six African-American running for Congress on the Republican ticket.  While it’s not unusual – this year could have a record number on primary ballots in November. 

South Carolina Republican State Rep. Tim Scott’s website says he wants’ to go to Washington “to secure the voice of the American people, to fight big government, and to rein in spending.”  He calls for folks in the first District to join his team.  Scott is running on consistent themes and messages of the GOP, but will that be enough? 

 Scott will need to be able to pull the votes of conservative White Republicans and in a state like South Carolina woo the predominately Democratic African-American voter? 

But Scott isn’t along when it comes to facing those challenges.  Deon Lon of Winter Park, Fla., is running for the seat in 24 District.   The married attorney and father of four also boast his conservative roots and party loyalty on his website along with a mention of his “passionate” support for school choice.   All of the candidates running as Republicans have impressive resumes but some lack a great deal of political experience.


  Les Phillips of Huntsville, Ala. is a native of Trinidad-Tobago and the son of immigrant parents and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1978.  He served as an aviator in the U.S. Navy following his military career entering the private sector and owning his own business.

Phillip’s website says the candidate for the 5th District “has a passion for defending the Constitution, protecting the freedom we hold dear and restoring America’s conservative values.”    

Angela McClowan is the only female on this short list of GOP hopefuls.  I’ve know Angela for a few years, she’s been a stable on the Fox News as a political analyst and she’s often appeared on BET News. 

McClowan, in Oxford, Miss. is now opting out of politics as a spectator and launching her political career in bid for Mississippi’s First Congressional District.  “This pro-life, pro-gun, pro-small business, conservative is working so hard for the privilege of representing Mississippi’s 1st congressional district,” her Website says.

“Angela will go to battle on behalf of Mississippians who are fed up with the abuse of our tax dollars and the rate of unemployment,” her website contends. 

In Fayetteville, N.C. a retired Army officer Lou Huddleston now a civic and business leader in the community has decided to run for the seat in District 8  Huddleston a second generation military family with degrees in political science and public administration identifies himself as a “lifelong Republican”  on his Website.

“New taxes, radical social agendas, massive corporate bailouts? That kind of “leadership” is not helping us right here at our kitchen tables,” Huddleston says..

One GOP candidate stands out as the only Black candidate outside of the southern region.  Ryan Frazier in Colorado has served in city government on the Aurora City Council as an At-Large member.  The father of three is a veteran, owns a small business and is the co-founder of a pre-K through 8the grade public charter school. 

His Website promotes a pro-business approach; “Congress must foster an environment of regulatory certainty by reining in their overreach into the day-to-day activities of private businesses. When lawmakers enact new regulations almost every week, this creates an atmosphere where business owners cannot plan for the future and plot a course for growth.”

All of the candidates have interesting looking websites and offer conservative views fitting for the GOP ticket they have opted to run on.  Check them out and let me know what you think.

Aren’t the Tea Party rallies suppose to resemble the All-white Anchors and Reporters on MSNBC, least watched network out there. Kevin Jackson, host of the Black Sphere on Youtube, appeared on O’Reily Factor last night to debunk these false accuastions of Racism from the Lamestream media. The Lamestream media gave SEIU a pass for their racial assualt against Ken Gladney, us Conservatives will NOT. Mr. Olberdoofus.

When I see blacks as member of the republican party, I see “Sell Out”. What have the republican party done for blacks other than try to keep the poor poor and the rich under control (Blacks that is). As far as I am concerned, the are opportunists know full well that the Republican Party need a few token blacks. Opportunistic infections to the american landscape is what I Icall them. They and Mr. Steele can all go to hell as far as I am concerened. Mutha F_ _ _ _ _ s!!!

I met Les Phillips at a Healthcare Forum this past fall. He is an outstanding person and would be an excellent public servant. I wish him well and the best of luck as he moves forward in his quest of a congressional seat.

B.West said on April 1st, 2010

Black Republicans. Wow, that’s like tryin’ to lynch yourself. In the 30’s and 40’s rural Blacks had to register republican because there were no democrat headquarters around them, but these people today make no sense to me.

Kevyster said on April 1st, 2010

Jlouis, Btw,If ya so ticked off about “token Blacks” why do you support MSNBC?

Christian Louboutin Sale said on April 2nd, 2010

The Canadian Inuit call them mukluks, the Native American Indians call them moccasins, and here in Australia we just call them christian louboutinies – but no matter what you call them, no matter what part of the world you come from, the fur or wool-lined soft-leather winter christian louboutin sale,louboutin,christian shoes will always be associated with daggy fashion sense, bogan behaviour, and the outer suburbs. Even the Inuit who wear mukluks live mostly in the west of Canada, drive around in sleds with souped-up huskies, and spend Saturday nights hanging out with their mates, sipping coldies, and doing a bit of seal night-clubbing.

The thing about Black republicans is that white republicans for the most part don’t vote for black republicans,ask Mr.Steele,not only did he not get the Black vote in Maryland,he didn’t get the White republican vote.That is why I don’t understand why he was hired to get Blacks to vote republican.

Kevyster said on April 6th, 2010

You don’t know much about the Republican voters do you? Maryland is a blue state so it’s a uphill battle for any Republican to win that state. If most White republicans won’t vote for the Black Republicans, then how come they all Black Republicans are still employed? 75% of the GOP is White, 12% is Black, rest is Women & non-Black minorities so if most White Republican won’t vote for Women/Black Republicans while are they still working. Don’t speak about things you have no clue on. Where are you getting your information about Steele,etc. It couldn’t be the White only MSNBC?

Gucci shoes are known worldwide for their durability as well as fashionable looks. You can find Gucci shoes best for both men as well as women. So if you want to go for men’s shoes and if you are considering going for men’s Gucci shoes then it is surely a great idea.Since years men’s Gucci shoes are liked by most of the men as they are simply best for variety for purposes. For example if can have men’s Gucci shoes available in a variety of comfort styles like outdoor range of Gucci shoes, shoes for sports, casual as well as for the city. Thus there is surely one perfect pair of men’s Gucci shoes meant for every occasion.

Black Republican said on April 7th, 2010

The ignorance and lack of tolerance from my follow black people is amazing.

Being a black republican isn’t different from being a black democrat. Racism is racism no matter your party affiliation.

Calling black republicans “sell outs” is ignorant and misinformed especial when black democrat’s hopes are in the great “no negro dialect” Harry Reid and the great democratic Klansmen Robert Bird.

Hey Detroit! How’s that “hope and change” working out for you.
Hey New Orleans! How’s that “hope and change” working out for you.
Hey Newark! How’s that “hope and change” working out for you.
Hey Gary! How’s that “hope and change” working out for you.
Hey Chicago! How’s that “hope and change” working out for you.

What do all these failing black communities have in common – Democratic leadership.

Some of most important and valued communities are run by Democrats and they are running their cities in the gutter. (well maybe with the exception of Newark’s mayor)

jose said on April 7th, 2010

@Black Republican
The over education of my fellow republican black people is amazing! -That’s how non-republicans look at you…overeducated, disconnected, flakes! How do you black republicans expect other registered minorities to follow you or take your point of view seriously when you constantly call them ignorant and look down on them. Fighting ignorance starts with our education system. I went to all six of the republican’s links. Only one republican candidate focuses on education. And you have the nerve to call someone ignorant. Go back and spell check you first sentence before you talk about ignorance next time

LT in DC said on April 8th, 2010

Dang they didn’t post my comment.

jfffnn said on April 8th, 2010

Lets try this one more time,why didn’t Mr. Steele get the black vote in Maryland ? No matter what if it’s a blue state or a red state ? what i do know is that Mr. Steele is a “TRAITOR” to his race.TAKE that a a hint to answering the question. The same reason why Swann of Pa. and that lam brain Keys of Ill. or whatever state he is from,the result is still the same.LOSER.

rednblack said on April 8th, 2010

So many of us continue to follow the same path without ever looking at the scorecard or results.
Liberal, Progressive Democrats have dominated our Inner cities such as, Los Angeles, Detroit, Oakland, New Orleans and Cleveland just to name a few. The results are in and the Report Card is an “F”. They have ALL been morally, ethically and Financially Bankrupt.
Democrats used to believe in picking up you up so you could walk on your own two feet. However, they have become the party that would rather see you dependent on someone else…specifically them.
We can blame,ridicule, mock the other party ALL we want but it is hypocritical when we are afraid to look at the party we pull the lever for 92%+ of the time.

jose said on April 8th, 2010

Has anyone noticed it has been stuck on the same subject for like 8 days? Pam can we please switch gears?

cheap gucci shoes said on April 8th, 2010

Gucci seems like just another word for fashion and luxury. There would hardly be any among us who could resist the temptation of stepping into these shoes, just given a chance. Gucci is one company that keeps tab of not just one’s tastes but also the need of the hour so they can cater to any customer based on the requirement.

Jimmy choo sale said on April 10th, 2010
Who doesn’t dream of owning numerous designer shoes? However, just buying any pair of designer shoes does not ensure that your feet will look good in them. As evidenced by Jimmy Choo, the iconic shoe designer, making a pair of shoes is an art. He believes that the shoes are foundations of a lady — and if the foundation is not built correctly, the lady will not be able to stand comfortably.

jfffnn said on April 12th, 2010

This dude may not get the republican nomination let alone get is a well known historical fact that white republicans don’t vote for black republicans,let alone blacks voting for black republicans. Just research Steele,Swann and Blackwell,all three were losers.I don’t understand why the RNC picked Steele to get the black vote when he did not get the black vote.

Right-wingGenius said on April 12th, 2010


U R an idiot. Steele was not elected “to get the black vote”. Please! Republicans know that anywhere from 70 to 80% of blacks are too dumb to vote for GOP candidates. Oh, is that offensive? Prove me wrong then! PROVE ME WRONG.

jfffnn said on April 13th, 2010

Right-wing Genius
You are anything but a genius,the RNC wanted Steele for just the reason I mentioned.As far as 70% to 80% of blacks being to dumb to vote for republicans the question is why should they ? Just last week the Gov. of Virginia proclaimed april as confederate month.It really goes back to Richard Nixon’s southern stategy when he convinced southern racist democrats to turn republican.Just do your research.Hell, Clarence “negro boy” Thomas is a perfect example of why the majority of Blacks vote democratic. Now if you are in denial then you should do your own research and that “prove you wrong”

Jfffnn you trog. A person can vote their conscience . And you act as if you are a ineptitude . (ineluctable).

jfffnn said on April 17th, 2010

You IDIOT,voting their conscience is all well and good,except in these times and conditions it is far better to vote from a pragmatic point of view.You being a racist white boy wouldn’t understand that.That is why black republicans don’t get the black vote,they tend to be the perfect slave and do what their master tells them to do.
