Heersink and Jenkins look at how Nationwide Conference politics allowed the South to stay necessary to the Republican Get together after Reconstruction. They hint how Republican organizations within the South modified from biracial coalitions to largely all-white ones over time. They discover how the ‘whitening’ of the Republican Get together affected its vote totals within the South. As soon as states handed Jim Crow legal guidelines primarily to disenfranchise black voters, the Republican Get together within the South carried out higher electorally the whiter it turned. These outcomes are necessary for understanding how the GOP emerged as a aggressive, and finally dominant, electoral celebration within the late-twentieth century South.
