PACs and the Black Community

While the focus has been on the Republican presidential candidates and the groups who support them, President Barack Obama has made gains in the way of financial supporters as well. In December 2011, Kappa Alpha Psi and Omega Psi Phi fraternities formed a super PAC, 1911 United, with hopes of raising $1.5 million for President Obama’s reelection campaign.
