BAMPAC Endorses Isaac Hayes for Congress

October 30, 2010 - Chicago - Isaac Hayes, the Republican nominee for U.S. House in the Second District of Illinois, was endorsed today by Black America’s Political Action Committee (BAMPAC), the nation’s largest minority PAC. Hayes is running against incumbent Jesse Jackson, Jr. President and CEO of BAMPAC Alvin Williams said, “Having Isaac Hayes elected to the U.S. Congress would be great for Illinois’ Second Congressional District. Mr. Hayes has proven leadership qualities and supports public policy that would accurately reflect the values and needs of our country and particularly the constituency of the 2nd District. The citizens of the 2nd Congressional deserves leadership and representation that is unimpeachable.” “I am proud and honored to receive the confidence and support of BAMPAC,” said Hayes. “The organization is essential to enlarging the 'big tent' mission of Chairman Michael Steele and is a national voice for Black Conservatives.” The primary mission of BAMPAC is to support African American candidates at the local, state and federal level who “advocate a common sense approach” to addressing America’s political issues. BAMPAC was founded in 1994. It is a non-partisan federal Political Action Committee committed to promoting the sanctity of human life, excellence in education, economic self-empowerment, protecting our freedom through limited government, and improving the moral climate in our nation as well as highlighting the importance of the African American vote. BAMPAC works daily towards those goals by supporting the election or re-election of public officeholders who share this vision and work to promote these core values in public life. Actively advocating its core issues through media campaigns and providing the quantitative and qualitative analysis on issues of importance to its growing constituency, BAMPAC also promotes the tenets of democracy and political action globally.
