PASADENA – The Armenian Council of America – Political Action Committee has released its list of endorsements for California’s Primary on June 5, 2018.

As a part of the endorsement process, the ACA-PAC Board carefully reviews each incumbent’s track record and each new candidate’s answers to questions concerning their Armenian American constituency. ACA-PAC endorsements are also based largely on the candidate’s preparedness and ability to address issues ranging from reaffirmation of the Armenian Genocide, promoting Genocide education in public schools, support for the independent Republics of Armenia and Artsakh.

The majority of these endorsements include incumbents who have served as a strong voice for the community.
