Today’s highlight was the RNC Convention Asian Pacific American National Forum. It was held at the Hard Rock Cafe and was an incredible time of fellowship and networking. Speakers included Reince Priebus, Elaine Chao, Michelle Steel, Alan Cobb, Sean Reyes, David Wang, Harmeet Dhillon, Helen Van Etten, Governor Eddie Calvo, and Mayor Ron Folconi. It was encouraging to see so many Asian American Republicans serving in or running for public office.
