Minority candidates see both success and veiled racism

WASHINGTON (AP) — For all the many successes among candidates of color, the midterm elections also proved to some the enduring power of racism.

Some minority politicians found their intelligence and integrity called into question by their opponents and President Donald Trump in what were widely seen as coded appeals to white voters.

Several Democratic strategists say the outcome shows the need for the party to recalibrate its strategy heading into 2020 and beyond. To win, they say, the party must expand its base of black and brown voters while also calling out racism more directly and doing more to persuade white voters to reject bigotry.
