2014 Elections

Editor’s Note: Richard’s writing below means he’s tracking it but not that the AAA-Fund gives an endorsement. Official endorsed candidates are here. But in other news, I stopped updating here as of Oct. 31 & ask what you think, comment below.

Asian American Pacific Islanders in Election 2014

I’m following:

Elected already

  • Suchada “Sue” Langley – elected Chair of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee, the largest committee in Virginia. Dr. Langley is a retired USDA economist and Thai American.
  • Clarence Tong – elected Chair of the Alexandria Democratic Committee. Clarence works in the Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs (CI) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). He is Chinese-American & was the Communications Director and Policy Director for Congressman Joe Sestak (D-PA), who lost to and will run in 2016 against Sen. Toomey.

And lost:

  • Reshma Saujani for New York City Public Advocate – don’t know her but her campaign is too Machallivian for my taste and she lost last year; more here and at her self-touting book

I update this post regularly (12 edits so far); all comments welcome below.

Good to do for any/all would be to tag politicians’ Wikipedia pages for Category:Members of the United States Congress of Asian descent or to edit this Wikipedia article.

    I think you need to recheck your links Richard. You’ve listed four candidates running for races that are not correct.

    Ted Lieu is a US house candidate and is not running for reelection in the State Senate.
    Stephanie Chang is running for the Michigan State House of Representatives and not State Senate.
    Colleen is running for US Senate but she isn’t a Senator yet, she is trying to unseat the incumbent Brian Schatz in the June Primary.
    And Donna is running for the US House nomination in Hawaii and not US Senate.
