John Chiang, the former treasurer in California, launches a political action committee to help Asian and American island democrats be elected, he announced on Thursday.

The committee, ElectAAPI.org, aims to "address the discriminatory, right-wing agenda propagated by the Trump administration," according to his announcement.

"Voting shows that the values ​​of the AAPI voters are in line with the priorities of the Democratic Party, such as extending access to health care, investing in higher education, expanding economic opportunity for color communities, and setting our broken immigration system" who ran for governor in California in 2018, said in a statement. "We can't take the AAPI community for granted."
