Senior African-American Republican?

Just out of curiosity, I was trying to figure out the senior elected Republican who happens to be African-American.

I struck out on governors, Senators, and Congressmen. The best the GOP could scrape up four years ago was Maryland lieutenant-governor Michael Steele, a schmuck who went on to lose the next race we ran. So, is there a speaker or president of the state legislature out there somewhere? Am agricultural commissioner?


(PS: I'm looking for elected officials...Condi Rice was appointed by one man. I'm looking for an African-American widely supported by Republicans.)
