Hails from: Los Angeles, CA (No, seriously–born and raised, which y’all know is rare!)
Occupation: House Representative for California’s 32nd Congressional District
Known for: After President Obama confirmed Hilda Solis as Labor Secretary in February, Chu entered the special election for her seat in California’s 32nd Congressional District. The crowd of eight candidates was narrowed to three in May, leading to last week’s special runoff election between Chu, Republican (and cousin-in-law) Betty Chu, and Libertarian Christopher Agrella.
Chu definitively won last Tuesday’s election, with 62% of the vote (composed notably of a deep Asian base, strong Latino support, organized labor and females), making her the first Chinese American to be elected to Congress.
Chu is our kind of woman: a longtime wife that shares the good work with her adorbs husband Mike Eng, an unabashed liberal, a veteran public servant, a proud Asian reprzentative and a pioneer.
And let’s face it–she’s also a knockout. But we couldn’t wait until tomorrow to sing her praises.
Merci, Dave and Jen!
