LOS ANGELES — The Armenian Council of America – Political Action Committee (ACA-PAC) has released its list of endorsed candidates for the upcoming nationwide Midterm Elections, on November 8, 2022.

Given the crucial junction that Armenia and Artsakh currently face, ACA-PAC carefully reviewed each Senate and Congressional candidate’s preparedness and ability to support the Republics of Armenia and Artsakh, reaffirm and advance Armenian Genocide education in various institutions, as well as their current stance on issues that affect Armenian Americans and the ability to serve the needs of the Armenian-American community and non-Armenian Americans alike.

Los Angeles has been home to hundreds of thousands of citizens of Armenian descent for many decades and Armenian Americans have been an integral force in the fabric and makeup of this racially, ethnically, religiously, socioeconomically, and culturally diverse city. As such, there are three crucial elections, that will shape and impact Armenian Americans living in Los Angeles. ACA-PAC is proud to endorse the candidates in these three local elections, and believes that if elected these candidates are better suited to foster the needs of Southern California Armenian Americans:

Karen Bass for Los Angeles City Mayor
Chief Robert Luna for Los Angeles County Sherriff
Mitch O’Farrell for LA City Council District 13

The ACA-PAC encourages all eligible Armenian-American voters to register and vote in the primary elections.
