(p.107) Conclusion
Race, Religion, and Economic Change in the Republican South

Matthew T. Corrigan

University Press of Florida

The study finds that the way that Republicans have come to power in the region will have important consequences on future governance. By examining race, religion, and economic change, the consequences of these political changes are apparent. This chapter has a number of conclusions: the emergence of the Republican Party has combined racial and partisan separation; the rise of the Republican Party in the region has mobilized white Protestant and Catholic churches to be active participants in electoral politics; and the new political order in the South will make the region even more accommodating to businesses, yet the wage gap in the region will likely increase.
