The 80-20 held a press conference on Jan. 18 in SF Bay Area to announce our endorsement of Senator Clinton for the California Democratic primary. Prominent leaders in many Asian-American ethnic communities attended. The 80-20 Board members Joel Wong and Frank Lee co-chaired the press conference.

In the print media, the news was covered by a mainstream news outlet, the News Media Group in the Bay Area, which included Oakland Tribune (front page), San Jose Mercury and Contra Costa Times. Almost all ethnic media gave us very prominent coverage. WJ, Singtao and China Press also spread the news nationally.

In the visual media, the endorsement was reported by Bay Area's KRON 4 (mainstream), KTSF 6 (Asian) and NTDTV 32 (Asian), each lasting about 2 minutes.  To see the broadcasts of the first two channels, click on . The videos are right on the Home page.

A Quote from the Clinton Camp, After our Endorsement

This quote came from The Oakland Tribune's front page article on 1/19/08: "Clinton campaign spokesman Luis Vizcaino said Friday that Senator Clinton is ‘honored to have the endorsement of 80-20. The Asian-American and Pacific-Islander community has a critical voice that will never go unheard when she is President.' "
