LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles, Las Vegas Bureau) – For the first time this elections cycle, the top four candidates running for president of the United States participated in a single forum organized by the Asian American community.
The event was sponsored by the Asian and Pacificific Islander American Vote (APIAVote) and the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA).
Held at the Caesar’s Palace, the townhall-type gathering was the highlight of AAJA’s annual national convention in Las Vegas.
The candidates who participated in the forum were:
Bill Clinton, Democratic nominee
Gary Johnson, Libertarian nominee
