Mr. Cao Goes to Washington: Rookie Congressman Joseph Cao of Lousiana navigates the realities of racial and partisan politics in the South while struggling to maintain his idealism. In 2009, Ang “Joseph” Quang Cao became the first Vietnamese American to enter into Congress. Dubbed the “Accidental Congressman,” Mr. Cao represents a mix of strong work ethic, Idealism, and political naiveté as captivating as any Jimmy Stewart could provide.
