INTERACTIVE: Where Southern blacks voted for Republicans

July 26, 2013 

With nine of 10 African-American voters choosing Democrats over Republicans in last November's congressional races, the GOP is starting to examine how it might make inroads in a community that has long been a Democratic stronghold.

House Republicans, none of whom are black, are turning to representatives with larger African-American constituencies for advice on reaching out to the black community. Of 234 House Republicans, 11 are in districts where at least a quarter of eligible voters are African-American.

McClatchy analyzed voter data from precincts that are virtually all black to figure out how six Republican House members in four states fared among African-American voters last November.
