The Black Economic Alliance PAC, a nonpartisan group of business leaders, announced its endorsement for Jaime Harrison, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in South Carolina.
BEA Executive Director David Clunie released a statement Monday endorsing Harrison as a strong leader the group can trust to make the right choices.
“America is in dire need of strong leadership to move our country toward justice. We must use the power of the vote to elect leaders like Jamie Harrison,” Clunie said. “His commitment to growing the middle class, ending poverty and bolstering South Carolina’s education system so it can compete in a 21st century economy are critical to close the economic divide and level the playing field for black Americans.”
“Jamie’s lifelong dedication to economically empowering black communities makes him a candidate we can trust to make the right choices. Whether it’s expanding the earned income tax credit for families or unburdening students saddled with student loan debt, Jamie knows firsthand what kind of support families need because he has worked hard to uplift himself and those around him his entire career.”
