  • ✪ The Inconvenient Truth About the Republican Party


Racist. Sexist. Republican. These words are virtually interchangeable—at least, according to most professors, journalists, and celebrities. So, are they right? Let’s take a look at history. The Republican Party was created in 1854. The first Republican Party platform, adopted at the party’s first national convention in 1856, promised to defeat, quote, “those twin relics of barbarism: polygamy and slavery.” Those “twin relics” were spreading into the western territories. Republicans feared that as those territories became states, polygamy and slavery might become permanent parts of American life. Polygamy—the marriage of one man to multiple women—devalued women and made them a kind of property. Slavery, of course, did the same to blacks. Literally. The Democrats were so opposed to the Republicans and their anti-slavery stance that in 1860, just six weeks after the election of the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, South Carolina, a state dominated by Democrats, voted to secede from the union. The Civil War that followed was the bloodiest war in US history. It led to the passage, by Republicans, of the 13th Amendment, which freed the slaves; the 14th Amendment, which gave them citizenship; and the 15th Amendment; which gave them the vote. In 1870, the first black senator and the first black congressman were sworn in—both Republicans. In fact, every black representative in the House until 1935 was a Republican. And every black senator until 1979 was, too. For that matter, the first female member of Congress was a Republican; the first Hispanic governor and senator were Republicans. The first Asian senator? You get the idea. Republicans also kept their pledge to defend women’s rights. In 1862, the Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act was passed by the Republican-controlled Congress to put an end to polygamy. In 1920, after 52 years of Democratic Party opposition, the 19th Amendment was ratified thanks to the Republican Congress, which pressured Democratic President Woodrow Wilson to drop his opposition to women’s rights. In the final tally, only 59 percent of House Democrats and 41 percent of Senate Democrats supported women’s suffrage. That’s compared to 91 percent of House Republicans and 82 percent of Senate Republicans. There certainly was a “war on women”—and it was led by the Democratic Party. But while Republicans had won a major battle for women’s rights, the fight for blacks’ civil rights had a long way to go. In the 1920s, Republican President Calvin Coolidge declared that the rights of blacks are “just as sacred as those of any other citizen.” By contrast, when famed sprinter Jesse Owens, a staunch Republican, won four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, he was snubbed by Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt. Roosevelt only invited white Olympians to the White House. Two decades later, it was a Republican President, Dwight Eisenhower, who sent the 101st Airborne Division to escort black students into Little Rock’s Central High when Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus—a Democrat—refused to honor a court order to integrate the state’s public schools. The Civil Rights Act of 1960, which outlawed poll taxes and other racist measures meant to keep blacks from voting, was filibustered by 18 Democrats for 125 hours. Not one Republican senator opposed the bill. Its follow-up bill, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, is one of the landmark pieces of legislation in American history. That, too, survived a filibuster by Democrats thanks to overwhelming Republican support. But, you might be thinking, all that’s in the past. What have Republicans done for women and blacks lately? The answer you’d hear from professors, journalists and celebrities is... “not much.” And this time, they’d be right. They’d be right because the Republican Party treats blacks and women as it treats everyone: as equals. The Democratic Party never has, and it still doesn’t. Today’s Democrats treat blacks and women as victims who aren’t capable of succeeding on their own. The truth is, this is just a new kind of contempt. So, there is a party with a long history of racism and sexism...but it ain't the Republicans. I’m Carol Swain, for Prager University.

West Virginia House of Representatives

Challenging District 15 Democratic representatives Margarette Leach, Kevin Craig, and Jim Morgan, Miller placed in the four-way three-selectee 2004 Republican primary, but lost the six-way three-position general election on November 2, 2004 (all the incumbents were re-elected).

Challenging the incumbents again, Miller placed in the six-way three-selectee 2006 Republican primary and was elected in the six-way three-position general election on November 7, 2006, unseating Leach. Incumbent Democratic representatives Craig and Morgan were re-elected.

Miller placed first in the three-way Republican primary on May 13, 2008, with 2,116 votes (43.8%).[6] She then placed third in the six-way three-position general election on November 4, 2008, with 8,163 votes (18.2%) behind incumbent representatives Craig and Morgan and ahead of non-selectee candidates Democrat Carl Eastham, and Republicans James Carden and Paula Stewart.[7]

Miller placed first in the three-way Republican primary on May 11, 2010, with 1,505 votes (44.4%).[8] She then placed second in the six-way three-position general election on November 2, 2010, with 6,601 votes (19.7%) behind incumbent representative Craig and ahead of Morgan and non-selectee candidates Democrat Matthew Woelfel, and Republicans Patrick Lucas and Douglas Franklin.[9]

With all three incumbent District 15 representatives redistricted to District 16, Miller placed first in the Republican primary on May 8, 2012, with 1,745 votes (19.6%),.[10] She then placed second in the five-way three-position general election on November 6, 2012, with 8,415 votes (21.8%) behind incumbent Democratic representative Craig and ahead of incumbent Democratic representative Morgan and non-selectee candidates Democrat Sean Hornbuckle and Republican Mike Davis.[11]

U.S. House of Representatives


On May 8, 2017, incumbent U.S. Representative Evan Jenkins announced his intention to run against incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Manchin.[12] In August 2017, Miller announced her intention to run to fill Jenkins' seat.[13]

On May 8, 2018, Miller defeated State Delegate Rupie Phillips and State Delegate Marty Gearheart. Miller received 23.8% of the vote and only won 3 of the 18 counties in the district.[14][15] Miller went on to face State Senator Richard Ojeda.[16]

Many polling outlets considered this race to be a Lean Republican or a tossup.[17][18] But on November 6, 2018, Miller defeated Ojeda, receiving 56.4% of the vote. Miller won all but 2 counties in the district.[19][20][21] Upon election, Miller became the first woman to represent West Virginia's 3rd congressional district and the only Republican woman to be elected to an open seat in 2018.[22][23]
