Miyoko spoke to the Asian and Latino Coalition candidate reception last night. The Des Moines Register was there.
Trung Nguyen, a conservative Asian American and a junior at Grand View University, came to the event specifically to see Democratic state Senate candidate Miyoko Hikiji speak. Hikiji grew up in Cedar Rapids and will be the first Asian American senator in Iowa if she is elected in November.
“I’m a Republican, but I still supporter her,” Nguyen said.
