A Conversation with the Republican Party: Chinese Americans & the 2016 Elections | Committee of 100

Lanhee Chen

Ed Cox, Chairman of the New York Republican State Committee, and Mayor Allan Fung, of Cranston, Rhode Island, discuss the role of Asian Americans in the 2016 Federal Elections. The moderator for the discussion was C-100 Member Lanhee Chen, Director of Domestic Policy Studies at Stanford University. Having served as the policy director for the Romney-Ryan 1012 campaign, Lanhee explains that the Republican party’s engagement with the Asian American community was too sporadic, failing to sway this ever important voter group. The three discuss the factors crucial to Asian American support of the Republican Party, isolating Virginia as a potential swing state where Asian Americans can potentially make a large difference.
