GLENDALE, CA – – The Armenian Council of America – PAC (ACA-PAC) is proud to announce the historic victory of the 44th President of the United States, President Barack Obama in addition to several other candidates endorsed by ACA-PAC at the Federal and State level.
Incumbent Senator Dianne Feinstein, Armenian American Congresswomen Jackie Speier and Anna Eshoo, Congressman Brad Sherman, Congressman Adam Schiff and Congresswomen Maxine Waters, all long-time friends of the Armenian community achieved victory by a landslide against their opponents, as did Congresswoman Judy Chu who has continuously proven her dedication and support of the Armenian-American community.
In the California State Assembly, Armenian American Rep. Khatcho Achadjian (R-San Luis Obispo), and Rep. Kristin Olsen (R-Modesto) both prevailed showing that their constituents preferred the incumbent candidates to represent them in the State Assembly. Pasadena City Councilmember Chris Holden prevailed with a marginal win in the 41st Assembly District race, a district which encompasses a large concentration of Armenian-Americans in the San Gabriel Valley.
Another highly concentrated Armenian-American district, the 39th Assembly District elected Raul Bocanegra, an educator who has close ties to the community. In the newly drawn 46th Assembly District, an area with a sizeable Armenian-American population, Armenian-American Adrin Nazarian, former Chief of Staff to Councilmember Paul Krekorian, prevailed over his opponent with a large margin.
Finally, in the 43rd Assembly District, voters re-elected Chair of the California State Assembly Appropriations Committee, Assemblyman Mike Gatto, whose district represents the largest Armenian-American constituency in the United States. Gatto has worked very closely with the Armenian-American community since he was first elected in June of 2010 and has authored and supported several bills that are substantially beneficial to Armenian-American interests.
