More than 100 Blacks in Congressional Races

Record Number of Black Candidates Seeking Office

More than 100 Black candidates will be on the ballot in statewide and congressional races next month, a post-Reconstruction record that some observers say is a byproduct of President Barack Obama’s historic presidency. At least 83 Black Republicans and Democrats are running for the U.S. House, an all-time high for the modern era, according to political scientist David Bositis, who has tracked Black politicians for years.

They include Mia Love in Utah, who is trying to become the first Black Republican woman to be elected to Congress.
