CAPA21 is contributing $20,000 to Asian American Advocacy Fund and $10,000 to Stacey Abram’s Fair Fight PAC. Both Georgia groups will play pivotal roles in turning out voters to support Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in their Senate run-off races.
We also donated $5,000 each to the Rev. Warnock and Ossoff campaigns, the maximum allowable contributions from a PAC for the run-off election.
AAPI voters in Georgia this year exceeded their total 2016 turnout by 57 percent and almost 30,500 voted for the very first time. Georgia’s 7th Congressional District, which is 14 percent AAPI, flipped to the Democrats, with Carolyn Bourdeaux (D) defeating Rich McCormick (R) in the general election.

We still have a chance at control of the Senate with the two Senate run-offs in Georgia. Democrats Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff prevented outright wins by Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) and Sen. David Perdue (R), respectively. The run-off election for both races is January 5. First polls show the races are tight.
The post-election tally of the Senate is now 50-48. Cal Cunningham (D) conceded to Sen. Thom Tillis (R) in North Carolina. Sen. Dan Sullivan (R) won Alaska’s Senate race as expected.
We will be supporting the Georgia run-offs in two ways: (1) making our own contribution from CAPA21 and encouraging donations directly to the campaigns; and (2) supporting organizations and efforts on the ground to turn out Democratic voters.
- Donate to both candidates at the same time, split evenly between the two candidates (or you can set the amount for each on the donation form). See form for limits.
- Donate to CAPA21’s fund supporting organizations and efforts turning out Democratic voters in Georgia. There are no contribution limits to this fund.
