CAPAC officially endorses Clinton ahead of California primary

Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s campaign got a big boost on Tuesday when the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) announced its endorsement for her nomination.

CAPAC endorsed Clinton a week before California’s planned Democratic primary on June 7. The day of endorsement also marked the final day of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

The federal political action committee, which focuses on promoting issues related to Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, officially endorsed late yesterday morning at Hilton Hotel in San Gabriel, California.

Judy Chu and Doris O. Matsui, Democrats and members of CAPAC, attended the Tuesday event.
Chu, who is the first Chinese-American woman to hold a seat in the U.S. Congress, represents a extensive suburban district in southern part of California.

Matsui, who stepped in to fill vacancy in Congress after the death of her husband Bob Matsui, represents the Sacramento area.

Clinton is currently leading her lone remaining competitor Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination by a count of 1,769 to 1,499 among conventional delegates. In the pursuit for so-called superdelegates, she is leading Sanders 541 to 43.
