WASHINGTON — Today, AAPI Victory Fund announced their latest endorsement for the 2022 election cycle: John Fetterman, candidate for US Senate from Pennsylvania. Currently serving as the Commonwealth’s Lieutenant Governor, John Fetterman has differentiated himself from the pack, championing progressive principles and policies for the last two decades. As Senator, Fetterman will continue to  advocate for a more fair and just Pennsylvania. 

As the fastest growing racial or ethnic group in the U.S., AANHPIs makeup 2.7% of Pennsylvania’s electorate, a figure that shows a 55% increase from 2010 to 2020. It is clear that the surging AANHPI electorate is becoming a crucial election-determining community in the state. 

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

I am excited to lead the AAPI Victory Fund in announcing our endorsement of John Fetterman for US Senate. Fetterman fought and advocated for countless progressive initiatives and issues in Pennsylvania for 20 years, centering criminal justice reform and a fair and just future. Lt. Governor Fetterman speaks to issues that matter deeply to the AANHPI community – a safe and healthy environment, a just democracy, a strong education that is accessible to all, and putting the people of Pennsylvania before corporations and special interests. Supporting Fetterman’s people-first campaign is one way to ensure our historically underrepresented community has a seat at the table and a say in the future of our democracy.”

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

“Pennsylvania’s AANHPI community is in good hands with Lt. Governor John Fetterman championing historically underrepresented and disenfranchised communities. A seasoned public servant, Fetterman centers his values in his work, fighting for a brighter tomorrow – with economic, racial, and climate justice at the forefront, issues which all motivate the AANHPI community. Fetterman’s commitment to the people of Pennsylvania demonstrates his trustworthiness and values and we are eager to see what he accomplishes in the US Senate.”
