“In 2018, our efforts resulted in the Democrats taking back the House by capturing key seats in Orange County, CA and Virginia,” said Varun Nikore, president of AAPI Victory Fund. “In 2020, we must keep and expand our Democratic majority, and elect Democrats that will respect our values and understand the importance of the AAPI community. We hope that AAPIs nationwide will join us in supporting these candidates and continue the push for progress.”
On January 19th of this year, the AAPI Victory Fund endorsed Joe Biden for President of the United States. In February, AAPI Victory Fund made its first wave of endorsements in Senate, House and State Races across the country.
