IAPAC Launches 2008 Presidential Election Center

Washington, D.C. - The race to the White House is well underway. With the Iowa Caucuses less than a month away, Iranian Americans have again demonstrated their growing voice in the American electoral arena. From coast to coast, Iranian Americans are busy raising funds, organizing events, and reaching out at the grassroots level to promote presidential candidates of their own choosing.

The Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) has complied a list of the 2008 presidential candidates for the Democratic and Republican primaries. IAPAC provides you with the opportunity to review each of the candidate's position on major issues affecting Iranian Americans, including civil liberties, immigration, and U.S.-Iran relations.

Each section provides a link to the candidate's website, offering viewers multiple opportunities to get involved. Whenever you contact or get involved with a campaign, be certain to identify yourself as an Iranian American so the campaign knows who we are and what issues are important us.

IAPAC is a registered bipartisan political action committee that contributes to candidates for public office. IAPAC focuses exclusively on domestic policy issues, such as civil liberties and immigration, and encourages Americans of Iranian descent to actively participate in civic affairs. As a bipartisan organization, IAPAC does not endorse one presidential candidate over another. Instead it focuses on providing information concerning candidate positions on relevant issues affecting the Iranian American community and on harnessing community efforts to support candidates of their own choosing.
