HBCU alumna and co-founder of the bipartisan federal HBCU Caucus Rep. Alma Adams has endorsed House of Representatives Minority Leader and Speaker candidate Rep. Nancy Pelosi for leadership of the transitioning legislative branch.
In a tweet, Adams endorses Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and James Clyburn, a South Carolina State University graduate, for continuing leadership of the majority caucus.

Dr. Adams’ endorsement comes as divergent views on the future leadership of the House continue to grow, with speculation that HBCU Caucus member Marcia Fudge (D-OH) could be seeking the leadership position.
