Washington, D.C. - The Congressional Black Caucus PAC (the political arm of the Congressional Black Caucus), Democracy for America PAC (the people-powered, grassroots organization), and Higher Heights for America PAC (the only organization in the U.S. whose sole purpose is to elect African American Women to higher office) announced their joint endorsement of Former Chief Justice Cheri Beasley in her bid for the U.S. Senate.

“It is crucial for our hard working Members in the House of Representatives to have colleagues in the Senate to ensure that their amazing bills become laws. We have seen what happens when we don’t have Senators who share our values and make it their mission to stall legislation. The CBCPAC is honored to endorse Justice Cheri Beasley to become the next US Senator from North Carolina,” CBCPAC Executive Director, Yolonda Addison said. 

“Cheri Beasley is no stranger to fighting uphill battles and delivering on her promises for North Carolina families; that’s why Democracy for America is excited to endorse her campaign for the U.S. Senate in North Carolina. We’re confident that Cheri is ready to take on special interests and go to Washington to create change for those that have been left behind for far too long. Not only will she make history as the first Black woman to represent North Carolina in the Senate, she’ll also be a true partner for progressive values and policies,” said Democracy for America CEO Yvette Simpson 

“Higher Heights enthusiastically supports Cheri Beasley in her bid to be the first Black woman Senator to represent the great state of North Carolina.  We know she is a necessary voice in the U.S. Senate,” said Glynda C. Carr, President of Higher Heights for America PAC. “We currently have zero Black women in the Senate and Cheri is in a position to ensure that all Black women will have a voice in this body. She has been a champion of healthcare for all, education, as well as the ability to find work that supports a family and retire with dignity. It is clear that she will not only fight for North Carolina, but she will also fight for all of us when she is elected to office.” 

Cheri is no stranger to making history. In 2019, she made history by becoming the first African American woman to serve as Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court. In 2021, if elected, Cheri Beasley will make history again by becoming the first African American woman to represent North Carolina in the United States Senate. Her proven leadership and her commitment to justice is proof positive that she will represent North Carolinians with the fortitude that they deserve.
