    This is GREAT to see!

    Among the many reverberations of President Obama’s election, here is one he probably never anticipated: at least 32 African-Americans are running for Congress this year as Republicans, the biggest surge since Reconstruction, according to party officials.

    Not sure if this is because of the Tea Party, or because a black man was elected president... did not think that GOP = Tea Party

    Not sure if they are running for the house or senate, however the enclosed maps are helpful..


    House Races - Election 2010 - The New York Times

    Senate Races - Election 2010 - The New York Times

    Another source perhaps less biased..
