election is an opportunity to enlarge our clout.
I) National Election
President Obama has been sincere in fulfilling his promises to us, we
therefore must help him back in the 2010 election. Otherwise, no political party
will EVER help Asian Ams. again. Politics is pragmatic!
Therefore, 80-20 Initiative has formally resolved that: "80-20 shall
support Democratic candidates in the 2010 Congressional races, except for those
election districts whose Republican candidates** have strongly supported
Asian American concerns."
II) Noteworthy Elections Involving Asian Americans
80-20 does NOT support candidates simply because they are Asian Ams.
Some Asian Am. politicians only want our money and votes but are NOT
willing to share our concerns. On the other hand, for those political
leaders who've helped us a lot, we help back a lot.
Today, we focus on Ted Lieu, a leading candidate for California Attorney
General, & an 80-20 Life Member.
1) Ted Lieu is an Assembly member of CA and Lieutenant Colonel in the
Air Force Reserves.
Ted will be the first Asian Pacific Islander elected to the office of Attorney
General of any state in US history. He has stood up to powerful interests
and authored landmark bills in the areas of mortgage reform, healthcare
access, domestic violence prevention, and consumer protection. He has
also repeatedly fought for minority communities and the civil rights of all
Americans. Based on his outstanding record, strong fundraising, & strong
endorsements, Ted has a high potential to win this election with your
