• Endorsed Candidates Win Big in 2010

    23 of the 30 Local Endorsed Candidates and Propositions have been declared winners in the Nov. 2, 2010 General Election.

    To be eligible for endorsement, local candidates had to submit questionnaire for review, attend an endorsement meeting where a statement was given and reviewed, and receive at least 60% of votes casted from paper ballots.

    We’d like to congratulate all our winners on their hard work and wish them continued success in office. The Asian Pacific American Democratic Caucus supports a limited number of candidates for each election cycle. If you would like the Caucus to consider endorsing your candidacy, please contact us at membership@apacaucus.org.
