In early January, Hillary Clinton, accompanied by Dr. Judy Chu (D-California), launched an outreach to Americans of Asian and Pacific Island ancestry. Today, the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), with Dr. Chu at the helm, will be endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.
In an open letter on his website to California Democrats and Independents today, Governor Jerry Brown also endorsed Hillary.
Led by two California lawmakers, the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus‘ political action committee will formally endorse Hillary Clinton for President next week.
Reps. Judy Chu, who represents the Pasadena area, and Doris Matsui, whose district encompasses metropolitan Sacramento, are scheduled to make the announcement Tuesday morning in San Gabriel.
In attendance will be Asian and Pacific Islander elected officials from throughout California who are endorsing Clinton. Earlier this year, all of California’s Congressional representatives of Asian descent announced they are supporting her.

On Tuesday, June 7, I have decided to cast my vote for Hillary Clinton because I believe this is the only path forward to win the presidency and stop the dangerous candidacy of Donald Trump.I have closely watched the primaries and am deeply impressed with how well Bernie Sanders has done. He has driven home the message that the top one percent has unfairly captured way too much of America’s wealth, leaving the majority of people far behind. In 1992, I attempted a similar campaign.For her part, Hillary Clinton has convincingly made the case that she knows how to get things done and has the tenacity and skill to advance the Democratic agenda. Voters have responded by giving her approximately 3 million more votes – and hundreds more delegates – than Sanders. If Clinton were to win only 10 percent of the remaining delegates – wildly improbable – she would still exceed the number needed for the nomination. In other words, Clinton’s lead is insurmountable and Democrats have shown – by millions of votes – that they want her as their nominee.
The stakes couldn’t be higher. Our country faces an existential threat from climate change and the spread of nuclear weapons. A new cold war is on the horizon. This is no time for Democrats to keep fighting each other. The general election has already begun. Hillary Clinton, with her long experience, especially as Secretary of State, has a firm grasp of the issues and will be prepared to lead our country on day one.Next January, I want to be sure that it is Hillary Clinton who takes the oath of office, not Donald Trump
The National Resources Defense Council, (NRDC), which has never endorsed a presidential candidate, has also endorsed Hillary. Both New Jersey and California have beautiful coastlines threatened by potentially catastrophic climate change. This first-ever endorsement should have an impact across the nation because we are all at risk in a variety of ways, and as Hillary says in her statement, "...there is no Planet B."
