USA Today: Jason Johnson on Republican Outreach to African-American voters

Hiram College professor Dr. Jason Johnson was quoted in USA Today about Republican outreach to the African-American community in the article “GOP sets small goals for black voter outreach.”

Jason Johnson, a political scientist at Hiram College in Ohio, doesn’t doubt the party leadership’s commitment to reaching black voters but says they have yet to bring along everyone else. “You still have a lot of state leaders who would rather hold on to pulling off 46-45% of the white vote and suppressing the black vote, than trying to get 15% of the African-American vote,” he says.
