These Asian American Candidates Want to Make America Great Again

Politicians from a voting bloc that historically leans blue say they want to ‘expand the boundaries of the MAGA agenda.’

"Wai Wah Chin, the founding president of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance of Greater New York, has her doubts Qiu can win—the district leans strongly Democratic, but she doesn’t think that matters long-term. What matters is that Qiu is running.

“People see this race and other races in Queens, Brooklyn, and elsewhere to mean that there will be more candidates, Republicans, who run in the next cycle and the cycle after that,” Chin told The Free Press. “I think that you will see more and more people in the Asian American community, which is a very broadly defined, almost amorphous community, who are encouraged and interested in running in the future.”
