Asian American PAC Endorses Candidates for November 2010 Elections
Houston, TX – The Houston 80-20 Asian American political action committee (Houston 80-20 PAC) has released its list of endorsements for the November 2010 general election.
Houston 80-20 PAC is a non-partisan organization dedicated to keeping the Asian American community in the greater Houston area informed and engaged in the political process. Since many Asian American voters usually have little knowledge about the credentials or policies of the candidates, Houston 80-20 PAC has served as a guide by putting together a list of endorsed candidates for those races of interest to the Asian American community. Past Houston 80-20 PAC endorsements have been pivotal in determining the outcome of close local races.
Houston 80-20 PAC carefully screens candidates through written questionnaires and interviews. A 2/3 super majority vote of the Endorsement Committee, which is made up of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents representing the diverse Asian American community in Houston, is required for endorsement in any race. Houston 80-20 PAC will promote their endorsed candidates through Asian ethnic media, mailers, phone calls, and block walking to registered Asian American voter households. Houston 80-20 PAC also provides transportation to the polls for seniors.
The Houston 80-20 PAC has endorsed the following candidates for elected office for election in Nov 2010:
U. S. Representative # 9 Honorable Al Green
U. S. Representative # 18 Honorable Sheila Jackson Lee
State Representative #26 Honorable Charlie Howard
State Representative #134 Honorable Kristi Thibaut

State Representative #149 Honorable Hubert Vo
Harris County Judge Honorable Gordon Quan
