What Happened at the May 20, 2013 Battlefield Dallas GOTV Meeting?


On May 20, 2013, the Dallas County Republican Party held its first meeting of the Battlefield Dallas project, an effort aimed at maximizing the turnout of conservative / Republican-leaning voters in Dallas County.  


During the question-and-answer period, the following interchange took place between Bishop John Lawson, a Black pastor in south Dallas, and Ken Emanuelson, the guest speaker:


Bishop John Lawson: “What are the Republicans doing to get Black people to vote?”


Ken Emanuelson: “I’m going to be real honest with you. The Republican Party doesn’t want black people to vote if they’re going to vote 9-to-1 for Democrats.”


Lawson: “Well, then what are you doing to get them to vote differently?”
