WASHINGTON, DC - Today, ASPIRE PAC, the political arm of Asian American and Pacific Islander Members (AAPI) of Congress, voted to endorse and support Gina Ortiz Jones (TX-23) and Dr. Hiral Tipirneni (AZ-06) in their campaigns for Congress.
“ASPIRE is proud to endorse Gina and Hiral in their races, and we look forward to supporting their campaigns to victory on Election Day,” said Congresswoman Grace Meng, Chair of ASPIRE PAC. “Gina is a proven military leader and tireless fighter for Texas. Hiral has strengthened her community as an emergency physician, researcher, and organizer. We need their voices and experience in Congress as we continue to fight to improve the lives of families across the country.”
ASPIRE PAC proudly welcomed two new AAPI Members of Congress in 2018, Congressman TJ Cox (CA-21) and Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03). The 116th Congress has a historic high of 20 AAPI Members of Congress.
ASPIRE PAC was established to work for fair representation in the U.S. Congress by supporting and increasing the number of AAPI policymakers and federal candidates with large AAPI constituencies.
