Look Who's Running: Black Republicans Seeking Political Office
Glo Smith, 5th Congressional District of Florida
Republican Glo Smith is taking on incumbent Florida Rep. Corrine Brown in 2014. Smith is a former aide to ex-Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, a once-rising star who was forced to resign earlier this year because of her alleged connection to an investigation of Internet cafés. She believes she is a "uniquely qualified alternative" who understands "the district's plight."
