Rick Perry tells Republicans to work harder for black votes

Republican presidential candidate and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry discusses his economic plan at a National Press Club luncheon speech in WashingtonBy Alex Wilts WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Presidential contender Rick Perry urged his fellow Republicans on Thursday to work harder to win black votes, saying decades of failed Democratic economic policies had given the party a fresh opportunity to appeal to African-Americans. Perry, the former governor of Texas, said the Republican Party’s indifference to black voters threatened its moral legitimacy at a time when black voters should be looking to the party for economic help. “For too long, we Republicans have been content to lose the black vote because we found that we could win elections without it,” said Perry, who lags badly in the Republican White House field, during a speech at the National Press Club.
