A question of population

Congressional Quarterly quoted UGA political science professor Charles Bullock in an article about the likelihood of a Republican challenger unseating Georgia Congressman John Barrow. Bullock noted that in the district in question, Georgia’s 12th, 45 percent of the voting population is African American.

“There’s not a district anywhere in the country with that kind of population makeup that is represented by a Republican,” said Bullock.
