Belkis "Bel" Leong-Hong Backs Obama

Thursday, June 05, 2008

Here's a quick tidbit on Belkis "Bel" Leong-Hong from two nights ago who is throwing her support behind Obama - from

Maryland Democratic National Committeewoman and superdelegate Belkis "Bel" Leong-Hong endorsed Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for president [...]

Leong-Hong, a former high-ranking Department of Defense employee and now the principal of a consulting firm, released a statement touting Obama as "the strongest candidate for the Asian-American and Pacific Islander community [who] understands that it’s time for AAPI issues — immigration, education, and small business policy, for example — to be discussed on the national stage."
I expect more people and communities will be coming out in the next few months offering up their support now that Hillary's campaign is over - or at least over in the nominee sense.
