Head of Romney’s policy division is Taiwanese American Lanhee Chen
We were reminded earlier this week by our friends at TaiwaneseAmerican.org that a big part of presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s campaign is influenced by Lanhee Chen, a Harvard grad and long-time member of Romney’s team. Chen is Romney’s Policy Director and has been with the campaign since Romney’s 2008 bid. Chen is only 34 years old.
Former US Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao heralded Chen as a rising star with the Republican Party. “It is rare that people of Asian descent are placed in such high positions in any US presidential campaign,” Chao said, according to The Taipei Times.
