PASADENA — The Armenian Council of America – Political Action Committee has released its list of endorsements for the upcoming general elections to be held on November 6, 2018.

As a part of the endorsement process, the ACA-PAC Board carefully reviewed candidate’s preparedness and ability to address issues ranging from reaffirmation of the Armenian Genocide, support for the independent Republics of Armenia and Artsakh, as well as their stance on issues that affect Armenian Americans and non-Armenian Americans alike.
