(AP) - The Republican Party is hiring people to reach out to black and Hispanic communities, and the GOP is setting goals for the number of minority candidates it will recruit.

At the same time, Republican judges are moving closer to a long-held conservative goal of ending affirmative action.

It's a delicate dance for Republicans.

The party is trying to appeal to minorities - whose support has trended toward Democrats - and highlight an increasingly diverse roster of up-and-coming politicians. And it's trying to accomplish that without violating core principles.
