Hung Nguyen's Campaign for Virginia House of Delegates
So far, this is how much each candidate has been able to raise. In the past two elections, Jim Le Munyon had raised on the average of about $450K while his opponents on the average of about $350K.
Hung Nguyen is behind in his effort despiste being supported by the Democratic Party and Labor Unions. But he has a chance if he could get his Asian-American base to vote for him. So far, they have been reluctant to give him money. Vietnamese-Americans in his district are well to do professionals so he will need to get them more interested in his candidacy.
The mainstream Vietnamese-Americans are neutral about him at the moment. He is mainly being supported by a quasi-political group called Viet Tan. This is a controversial anti-communist group in California that is known for their militant efforts to overthrow the Vietnamese government.
