Black Church PAC Endorses Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris for President and Vice President

Announces Local Endorsements in Georgia and South Carolina as Well 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Black Church PAC today announced its first round of endorsements for the 2020 election cycle. The PAC endorsed:

  • Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris for President/Vice President.
  • Raphael Warnock for U.S. Senate (GA)
  • Jaime Harrison for U.S. Senate (SC)
  • Lucy McBath for U.S. Congress (GA-06)
  • Cori Bush for U.S. Congress (MO-01)

The Black Church PAC was founded in 2017 by Pastor Mike McBride, Bishop Leah Daughtry, the Rev. Dr. Jamal Bryant, Pastor Traci Blackmon, Bishop Frank Reid, Erica and Warryn Campbell, Dr. Iva Carruthers and other leading clergy from across the country. The Black Church PAC is a strategic initiative which engages in selected federal, state and local races deemed consequential to addressing urban gun violence, mass incarceration, voter suppression and economic justice. It aims to elect leaders committed to changing these conditions and championing the equitable treatment of Black communities.

The group will engage and activate one million Black church voters in support of the Biden/Harris ticket, and other endorsed candidates. Through virtual Souls to the Polls events, text-a-thons and phone banks, voter registration drives, and digital organizing workshops, the Black Church PAC will leave no stones unturned to ensure Black voters vote in historic numbers.
