Fraternal PAC Endorses Biden-Harris Ticket

The Alpha PAC — a political action committee formed by members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated, the oldest Black intercollegiate fraternity in the United States — officially endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris for the Nov. 3 election.

Harris, a California senator and member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, would be the first Black woman, HBCU alumnus and member of a Black Greek-letter organization to serve in the White House.

“Our communities are in especially desperate need of the leadership Vice President Biden and Sen. Harris will bring to the White House on day one,” Isaac Fordjour, a spokesperson for the Alpha PAC, said in a press release Monday. “The dual health and economic crisis devastating the Black community due to COVID-19 and a national reckoning around racial justice issues requires battle-tested leaders who will focus on our concerns and lead with a plan to build back better.”

The PAC also endorsed Democrats Dr. Cameron Webb, who is running in Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District, and Rev. Raphael Warnock, pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church who is running for U.S. Senate in Georgia’s special election.

Both Webb and Warnock are members of the fraternity, which endorsed seven other Alpha Phi Alpha brothers including Gregory Meeks, Bobby Scott, Steven Horsford, Emmanuel Cleaver, Danny Davis, David Scott and Al Green, the organization said.
