Black Republicans in Alabama Are Getting the Party Started
Pamela Blackmore-Jenkins, Alabama House of Representatives
Pamela Blackmore-Jenkins, who is running for an Alabama House seat to represent a district in the Birmingham area, has a rather remarkable story. The native New Yorker was a married mother of two before her high school graduation and was later a divorced mother of three. That didn't stop her from going to college or earning a law degree in 2013. The Republican activist says she's running for office because "I have always been a results-driven, no excuses, problem solver. People want results and I must deliver. I am a conservative that will take action, work hard, and bring people together."
