The Republican National Committee (RNC) has spent millions to build centers around the country to engage, hear the concerns of, and gain votes from the Asian Pacific American (APA) community in preparation for the impending midterm elections this autumn.
This week, the RNC dedicated a new APA community center in Issaquah, Washington, a city in King County that has over a quarter of its people of Asian descent, according to the most current data available from the United States Census Bureau.
Nainoa Johsens, director of Asian Pacific American Media for the Republican National Committee, told Fox News Digital that the party had “spent millions” in trying to connect with and win over Asian Pacific Americans before the November elections.
According to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, “the RNC has committed millions to meaningfully connecting with Asian Pacific Americans under her leadership,” as stated by Johsens. Specifically, “the GOP’s message is resonating because Republicans are concentrating on the problems that matter to Asian American families, such as out-of-control inflation and violent crime that have severely afflicted AAPI communities.”
