New Face of the Republican Party
It’s not your grandfather’s Republican Party anymore.
If you think the Republican Party is made up entirely of old white men, you need to take another look at the cover of this newspaper.
I noticed an increase in the number of non-white faces at the Guilford County Republican Party Lincoln Reagan Dinner a couple weeks ago and wrote a short piece about it. Guilford County Republican Party Chairman and District 57 state House candidate Troy Lawson, who is black, called me up to say he was glad I had noticed and that increasing the diversity of the Republican Party was something he had been working on.
He also offered to invite a group of diverse Republicans up to Republican headquarters on Sunday, May 27. The question posed to the group was, “Why are you a Republican?”
