The Houston 80-20 Asian American political action committee (Houston 80-20 PAC) has released its list of endorsements for selected races in the November 5, 2019 elections. Houston 80-20 PAC is a non-partisan organization dedicated to keeping the Asian American community in the greater Houston area informed and engaged in the political process. Houston 80-20 PAC has served as a guide by putting together a list of endorsed candidates who we believe will best serve the interests of the Asian American community.
Past Houston 80-20 PAC endorsements have been pivotal in determining the outcome of local elections. Our Endorsement Committee carefully screens candidates through both written questionnaires and personal interviews. A 2/3rds super majority vote of the Endorsement Committee (made up of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents), is required for endorsement in any race. Houston 80-20 PAC will promote the endorsed candidates through ethnic media, mailers, phone calls, block walking to registered Asian American voter households, and providing transportation for senior voters to the polls.
