WASHINGTON — This morning, AAPI Victory Fund announced its endorsement of Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois’ 8th congressional district for re-election. Since 2017, Representative Krishnamoorthi has been a proponent of legislation that combats the effects of climate change, an advocate for healthcare for all, and a champion of all of those in Illinois.
“On behalf of AAPI Victory Fund, we are pleased to announce our endorsement of Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois’ 8th congressional district for re-election. During a time when the future of our democracy is at stake, we are prioritizing supporting and electing leaders who are committed to passing progressive legislation that seeks to improve the lives of not only the AAPI community but all Americans.
“With almost 7% of Illinois’ population belonging to the Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander community and the need for representation in all levels of government remains exceedingly important, we are proud to uplift Representative Krishnamoorthi’s dedication to combatting the effects of climate change, protecting access to abortion, and serving our country’s most vulnerable communities.
“As a leader dedicated to justice, equity, and a better future, AAPI Victory Fund is proud to join the over 100 national leaders and organizations supporting Representative Krishnamoorthi for re-election.”

Representative Krishnamoorthi has been an indispensable member of Congress who has supported legislation that seeks to build a better life for not only his constituents but all Illinoisans. His top priorities – growing our economy and creating jobs, strengthening education, providing training at every level, and supporting women and working families – are important to the 8th district and the entire United States. There is no doubt that Representative Krishnamoorthi will continue to fight for the future of our communities and ensure everyone has the opportunity to thrive.”
