VINELAND â€“ Will Cunningham, who is running for Congress as a Democrat in the New Jersey’s Second District, announced he has captured the endorsement of The Collective PAC.
The Collective PAC is a national organization with the mission of increasing African-American political representation in the democratic process.

“In the United States today, 90 percent of elected officials are white. In a nation whose essence is built on a promise of democracy and the principle that all are created equal, this statistic is unacceptable. It is time that our elected leaders reflect the struggle of the communities they seek to represent,” Cunningham said.
