A Washington D.C.-based political action committee dedicated to recruiting, training and funding progressive black candidates for public office has endorsed Newton Mayor Setti Warren's campaign for governor here in Massachusetts and Tito Jackson's bid to unseat Boston Mayor Martin Walsh.

"The elections taking place this year and in 2018 represent transformational opportunities for our nation and the black community," The Collective PAC Founder Quentin James said in a statement. "At a time when only three African Americans currently hold statewide offices, this November we have the opportunity to elect two African Americans to Lieutenant Governor positions - Justin Fairfax in Virginia and Sheila Oliver in New Jersey. And in 2018, we have the opportunity to elect the largest class of black congressional and gubernatorial candidates in our nation’s history."
