Rep. Peters Backed for Re-Election by Chinese-American, Vietnamese-American Leaders

Rep. Scott Peters is proud to announce the names of dozens of Chinese-American and Vietnamese-American community leaders – Democrats and Republicans – who are backing his re-election campaign. 

“Asian-American business owners, educators, students, and families are an integral part of San Diego’s diverse cultural make up; we are fortunate to have their strong contributions to our region,” Peters said. “It’s been my honor to represent this community in Congress and I am grateful for the support of these, and other, outstanding civic leaders.”
