The National Black Political Caucus gave its full support to Elmer McClung when he ran for City Council in the City of Pittsburgh. Note the Democratic Party in Pittsburgh, PA failed to endorse one single Black candidate for the position of City Councilman which led to a movement spearheaded by the Metropolitan Crusade for Voters, The National Black Political Caucus, ACORN and other groups who lobbied very vigorously and vociferously for "By District Elections".
