Democrats in Southern Brooklyn: ‘Our Party Didn’t Even Put Up a Fight’

Updated: Nov 20, 2022

".Yiatin Chu, president of the Asian Wave Alliance, a group that endorsed a mix of Republican and Democratic candidates across the borough, said state Democrats failed to invest in and tailor their outreach to Chinese American and other Asian voters.

“Oh my goodness, if you were on WeChat you wouldn’t even know Hochul was running a campaign,” Chu said, noting that the numerous Chinese American activists in Queens and Brooklyn used the popular social media platform to rally for GOP candidates.

Likewise, in the commercial corridors of Sunset Park and Bensonhurst, Chu continued, Chinese American volunteers were handing out GOP campaign literature and putting down lawn signs for Zeldin. But Hochul’s forces had far less of a presence."
