More than 100 prominent Asian American and Pacific Islanders — creatives, activists and academics — announced their support Thursday for Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.
The collective cites Warren’s stance on a number of issues important to the Asian American community, including immigration, education and investment in entrepreneurship among the reasons for its support.
Two in 5 Asian American registered voters did not identify themselves as either Democrat or Republican, according to the 2018 Asian American Voter Survey.
According to Pew Research, 59 percent of the Asian American population was born in another country.
One Asian American super PAC, AAPI Victory Fund, has already announced its support for Biden.
