“The Asian American community is… one that is becoming increasingly politically active.  It is imperative that we focus on this community as it is the fastest growing demographic — and is extremely important for the Republican Party in upcoming elections,” remarked John Ying, Chairman of The Asian Republic Coalition (ARC), as he welcomed over 200 for the coalition’s official launch at the Newseum Tuesday.

ARC hopes to serve as a voice for the comprehensive Asian American community, one comprised of individuals of Asian ancestry, mixed ethnic heritage and those vested in the Asian community through family or close personal relationships, business, education or other cultural reasons.

As an independent organization, ARC lobbies decision makers and stresses political engagement at all levels for Asian American members.

Among those in attendance to “improve the representation of the Asian American community and to help promote its diverse interests,” (Senator Orrin Hatch) were Sens. Roy Blunt, Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, John Cornyn, Dean Heller, Jim Inhofe, Ron Johnson, James Risch, Tim Scott, Pat Toomey, David Vitter, Roger Wicker and Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy.
