Jordan Cruger, an African-American student at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, created a Facebook page to help garnering support from the black community for republican GOP candidate Mitt Romney. Cruger launched “African Americans for Mitt Romney" on Jan. 21, which to date has 88 ‘likes.’
Cruger launched the page on Jan. 21 with a video of Romney recalling his father’s relationship with Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. The social-media venture’s mission is to gather African-American support for Romney’s White House bid.
“Mitt Romney will create many new jobs for African-Americans. He has laid out a plan to get the economy moving, lower unemployment and make sure that promises made by a functional government are promises kept,” the John Jay College of Criminal Justice student writes.
Cruger, who is president of his school’s Republican Club, told The Hill that he is often “one of a few African-Americans at any Republican event.” He hopes the Facebook effort will help change that.
“I think more people of my race should be Republican because I believe the Republican Party has been looking out for Black people a whole lot,” said Cruger, adding that fellow GOPers have made him feel extremely welcome.
