Both Parties Vie to Motivate Black Voters

On the opposing side, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul sought to send the message that their party’s days of conceding the black vote are over by attending to National Urban League’s annual conference this week.
