WASHINGTON — Today, AAPI Victory Fund announced their latest endorsement for the upcoming midterm elections: Susie Lee of Nevada’s 3rd congressional district for re-election. Since 2018, Representative Lee has dedicated herself to bipartisanship to combat partisan dysfunction and gridlock in order to deliver for all Nevadans.

In a state where the Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander community makes up over 10% of the population, Representative Lee has been a proponent of passing legislation that works to create a community where everyone has an opportunity to thrive.

AAPI Victory Fund President and CEO Brad Jenkins issued the following statement:

“On behalf of the AAPI Victory Fund, I am pleased to announce our endorsement of Representative Susie Lee for re-election to Nevada’s 3rd congressional district. Rep. Lee’s unwavering support and dedication to bipartisanship have made her a champion in passing legislation to make healthcare more accessible and affordable, improve public education, and rebuild the economy. There is no doubt that Representative Lee’s allyship and commitment to standing up for southern Nevada’s Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander community has helped create opportunities for our community to feel safe despite record-high anti-Asian hate crimes.

“We have full confidence that Representative Lee will continue to fight for legislation that works for not only her constituents but all Nevadans.”

Nevada’s 3rd congressional district candidate Rep. Susie Lee issued the following statement:

“From healthcare, to education, to tourism, and beyond, our AAPI community has contributed so much to making southern Nevada a vibrant place to live. As a member of Congress, I will continue to ensure that everyone in our AAPI community has the opportunity to live with security and continue to succeed. I’m proud to have the endorsement of the AAPI Victory Fund and will continue to fight to protect the rights and wellbeing of our AAPI community.”

AAPI Victory Fund National Political Director Shehn Datta issued the following statement:

“I am proud to see the AAPI Victory Fund endorse Representative Susie Lee for re-election. Since 2018, Representative Lee has been an proponent of solutions-based bipartisan leadership in the halls of Congress. Rep. Lee ensures that leadership delivers results on critical issues such as healthcare and public education so all Nevadans have equitable access to the resources and care they need. I am confident that Representative Lee will continue to serve as an advocate for bipartisanship in order to pass legislation that works for Nevada’s diverse population.”
