IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: ANH "JOSEPH" CAO - CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS

Rate this Entry

There's a very interesting election in New Orleans tomorrow. Louisiana's unusual runoff rules mean that the final congressional election in the Crescent City is actually a month later than the rest of the country. The Democrat in the race is Congressman William Jefferson who has been indicted for corruption (which includes the allegation that he stuffed $90,000 from his bribes in his freezer). The Republican is Vietnamese-born Anh "Joseph" Cao, a former philosophy professor at Loyola University who has worked for the last few years as an immigration lawyer.

Cao describes himself as a moderate Republican and when I heard him interviewed on the radio today, he made it clear that he supports immigration reform including legalizing the massive unlawfully present immigrant population. He's exactly the kind of candidate Republicans need to be fielding around the country if the GOP hopes to dig itself out of the hole in which it finds itself.

Cao would normally have no chance at winning this heavily Democratic district. But because of his opponent's serious legal problems, some of the pundits are saying he's got a decent chance. He also won the endorsement of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the city's daily newspaper.

Good luck Mr. Cao.

    he won last night!

    and it's not the runoff rules that made this election later than the rest of the country - this election (along with the one in the north of the state) was delayed a month because of hurricane gustav.

    Congrats Mr. Cao. All immigrants of any origin are proud of your achievement. "Yes, we can make a difference!".

    I just wish the first Vietnamese American elected to congress could have been a democrat or liberal instead. The GOP doesn't represent the younger generation of Vietnamese Americans like myself. Vietnamese are hardworking immigrants who have been benefiting from good policiies on social issues that the Democrats and liberals champion. I am proud that he's Vietnamese and he seems very educated but I do hope that he doesn't start pushing that typical selfish "let make lots of money" republican mentality.

    TH, I am sorry about your point of view. Vietnamese Americans don't need govt handouts. We come here to thrive and succeed, we don't come here for welfare. Social programs in America take care of elderly people and disabled people, that's good enough. The rest of people needs to work. You represent nobody except yourself. Don't use the word "Vietnamese Americans" there.
