Tim Scott, Jennifer Carroll and Allen West lead Romney’s Black Leadership Council

Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, are among three national chairs of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s newly-named “Black Leadership Council.”

“I am proud to have the endorsements of so many leaders in the black community,” Romney stated in a release issued by his campaign. “They know all too well that the economic downturn that has continued to hammer our country has been even more devastating for black Americans. Together, we will work to end that downturn, and we will not rest until all Americans have the jobs they need, the quality education they are owed, and the opportunities they deserve.”

The third chair of the 21-member panel is U.S. Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C. The rest of the members are from out of Florida, with several from Ohio.

In the release, West called Obama “a disappointment.”

  1. Dear Col. West:

    Believe me…… The Orlando Sentental is …no friend of yours.. or.. any conservative!!! My wife and I called them just today and cancelled out subscription, because of the incessant liberal viewds of their writers… especially a guy who’s last name is Maxwell!@!@!

  2. My ONLY question would be…why is he (Romney) even segregating the group by naming it the “Black Leadership Council”? Why can’t your group just be called the “Leadership Council” and work toward your goals without the name bias??? I believe that is what keeps the fuels fed regarding what discrimination is left. We are all AMERICANS, and we should be labeled as such, in ALL we do. (This is coming from an AMERICAN that is NOT voting for Obummer.)

    • AND … Allen West is the ONLY American I have EVER given a financial donation to in my whole life. So that tells you how I feel about him. 🙂

      • Romney is doing what all leaders before him have done. Its nothing new and it is an outreach program really for voter participation as the drive. These 21 conservatives will get the job done and be a strong voice for Romney.
