As the Democratic primary for governor gathers steam, both candidates are aggressively courting black voters, expected to be critical in determining who will face Republican incumbent Sonny Perdue in November.

Blacks made up 47 percent of the electorate in the 2004 Democratic primary. And the most recent state voter registration records from this spring show that 177,852 more blacks have joined the active voter rolls since the same period in 2004. That’s led to some speculation that Georgia could see its first majority black primary this year.
