The first Asian American Pacific Islander super PAC, the AAPI Victory Fund, has released its first web ad.
The ad titled Rejecting Hate targets voters in Virginia, one of three states identified by the Clinton campaign as states Asian American Pacific Islander voters can provide the margin of victory.
“Donald Trump has consistently chosen to divide our country with hateful demagoguery that fuels anti-Muslim sentiments across the country,” said Dilawar Syed, AAPI Victory Fund co-founder and vice chair. “We must fight back against a candidate whose platform is steeped in bigotry and who believes that attacking a diverse and engaged American community will somehow give him the path to the White House. We won’t stand for it, and we won’t let it happen.”
The Clinton campaign is also targeting Asian American voters in Nevada and Pennsylvania.
The Asian Journal reported bilingual material in multiple Asian languages will be distributed in all three states where they believe AAPIs can provide the margin of victory.
