WASHINGTON – A new political organization launched by African-American business executives is expanding quickly and endorsed 14 House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates Monday, as it seeks to push black economic issues to the forefront of November’s midterm elections.

The Black Economic Alliance is putting its financial clout and connections behind candidates in high-profile races. That includes Democrat Mike Espy, the former congressman and U.S. agriculture secretary now in a three-way battle for a U.S. Senate seat from Mississippi, the state with the highest percentage of African-American residents in the nation.

Other candidates the alliance is endorsing: former Nevada congressman Steven Horsford, who is running for an open Las Vegas-area U.S. House seat and Texas Democrat Colin Allred, a lawyer and former Tennessee Titans linebacker hoping to oust 11-term Rep. Pete Sessions in a Dallas district Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016.

The endorsements, provided first to USA TODAY, focus on competitive contests playing out mostly in districts and states where the black population is significant and African-American turnout could be the decisive factor in November.
