California’s Asian & Pacific Islander (API) Legislative Caucus urges you to vote for Ali Taj for Senate on or before Tuesday, June 5.”

The API caucus joins a long list of local elected officials who have already endorsed Ali S. Taj’s campaign including former State Senator/current LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn and Assembly Member Sharon Quirk-Silva.

Janice Hahn said: “Ali Taj is an effective leader who isn’t afraid to stand up to special interests or oppose the status quo in order to do what is right. He’s exactly the person we need representing us in the State Senate.”
