Shawn Steel is a Republican National Committee member from California.
Steel thinks the election of conservative Asian American women like Ling Ling Chang and his wife Michelle Park-Steel to office is “literally changing the face of the Republican Party in the most populous Republican County in America: Orange County.” He is credited with recruiting four Asian American women to the GOP who all won local and state elected offices in Orange County in 2014.
America By The Numbers with Maria Hinojosa (ABTN) will examine engaged voters like Shawn whose power and influence are growing in a 2016 election special titled “The New Deciders.” The one-hour program will air on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 on PBS and local public TV stations (check local listings).
