Presidential Election of 2008 and How We Win Our
80-20's Recommendations on Whom To
Support during Primaries
Bylaw for the 80-20 PAC:
7.1 Protocol Regarding Primary Elections: Two
months prior to the presidential primary held in New Hampshire, the President
of the Board of Directors shall write each of the presidential candidates
of major political parties and seek his/her commitment to support 80-20's
major goals and programs. 80-20 shall announce the primary candidates'
responses as they become available. 80-20 shall urge its supporters to
WITHHOLD financial and other forms of support to any presidential PRIMARY
candidate who fails to pledge his/her commitment in writing and in accordance
with 80-20's pledge requirements. Our supporters shall vote only for primary
candidates who have already met 80-20's pledge requirements. While adhering
to the above guidelines, the Executive Committee shall have the option
to endorse specific candidate (s) in specific primary elections in various
state(s) provided such decision is first approved by at least two-thirds
of the Board.
We ask fellow Asian Americans to join us in our declaration to WITHHOLD
financial and other forms of support to any presidential PRIMARY candidates
who fail to pledge his/her commitment to our request for equal justice
in the workplace.
Therefore, since Sen. Dodd, Sen. Biden, Sen. Gravel, Sen. Clinton, Sen. Edwards, and
Gov. Richardson are the only candidates
to have satisfactorily responded to our questionnaire at the present,
please support ONLY their candidacies. Please withhold
support from ALL other candidates. Thank you.
