[Black Enterprise]

It appears Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is not giving up on the black vote just yet. In a press release, the Romney campaign announced that it has formed a Black Leadership Council, comprised of African-American leaders who will advise the former Massachusetts governor on issues that most affect black American communities.

“I am proud to have the endorsements of so many leaders in the black community,” Mitt Romney said in a press statement. “They know all too well that the economic downturn that has continued to hammer our country has been even more devastating for black Americans. Together, we will work to end that downturn, and we will not rest until all Americans have the jobs they need, the quality education they are owed, and the opportunities they deserve.”

The council will be led by Representative Tim Scott (SC-01), Representative Allen West (FL-22) and Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll.
