* A Black Democrat and a White Republican
* A Black Democrat and a Black Republican, though rare
or even a
* A Black Democrat who is light skinned and a Black Democrat who is dark skinned
WE ARE NOT GOING TO GET THROUGH THE CAMPAIGN without some reference to RACE!

Honeycutt (A Black Physician and Republican) slams Scott over ad
Deborah Honeycutt on Thursday scoffed at her incumbent opponent’s suggestion that she doesn’t like black people and insisted she’s not hiding her Republican party affiliation.
“It’s another ridiculous claim,” Honeycutt said. “They’re doing just panic desperation mode. They don’t know what to do because my message is resonating with voters all over the district.
“So they have to resort to lies,” Honeycutt said during a telephone conference with reporters.
Honeycutt is challenging incumbent Democratic Congressman David Scott for his District 13 seat in the U.S. House. Both candidates are African-American. The 13th District is majority black and overwhelmingly Democratic.
On Wednesday, the Scott campaign released a radio ad drawing attention to Honeycutt’s Republican affiliation and opposition to Democrat Barack Obama for president.
“Worst of all,” states a narrator in the Scott ad, “Republican Honeycutt doesn’t even seem to like us. And she doesn’t want to be around us.”
At a recent press conference, Honeycutt told reporters she is supporting John McCain for president, even though most voters in the 13th District probably don’t.
“I would rather be with someone who shares my same values and principles,” Honeycutt said, “than be with people who might look like me that I have nothing in common with.”
Honeycutt said she opposes Obama because he supports “black genocide.” She was referring to Obama’s support of abortion rights.
During the telephone interview, Honeycutt rebuffed Scott’s accusation that she’s hiding her GOP party affiliation.
“It’s absolutely false and I think ludicrous,” said Honeycutt. “At every community political forum, including the Atlanta Press Club debate, I have been announced as the Republican challenger.”
However, the word “Republican” is not mentioned in at least three radio ads cut by or on behalf of the congressional candidate.
The Scott campaign has filed a formal complaint to the Federal Election Commission accusing Honeycutt of paying for a flier distributed by a group called “Democrats for Good Government,” instead of putting the flier in her own name.
The flier calls Scott “corrupt.”
Included with the complaint is a copy of an invoice for a flier titled “Corrupt” that was sent to Honeycutt’s husband.
Honeycutt has said she is unaware of the flier and will investigate whether anyone in her campaign had anything to do with it.
