I ran across the MOST interesting tidbit Monday.

I walked into the Republican McCain office over in Sterling...and saw a bumper sticker on the wall that reaches out to the Black Americans among us. It states, very simply:

Martin Luther King was a Republican.

I had to have it. I needed to display it.
Look, for the first time that I'm aware of, our local Republican Party here has an Ethnic Outreach Chairman and Committee. The new Chair of the LCRC and all around nice guy, Glen Caroline, encouraged the Committee's creation.
We recently had Don Scoggins at the Loudoun County Republican Committees' August 26th meeting . Don is President of Republicans for Black Empowerment and founder of The Frederick Douglass GOP Forum. He strongly encouraged us to try to achieve a 35% Black membership .

This is yet another step in the right direction that Mr. Caroline has helped us take. There are many more steps, but we are definitely headed in the right direction of "the Big Tent".
