Commerce Secretary Gary Locke Confirmed to be U.S. Ambassador to China

The Senate had unanimously confirmed about two days ago that Secretary Gary Locke will be the U.S. Ambassador to China, which would make him the first Chinese American born to hold this position. [Washington Post]

During my first day in DC as an intern at APIAVote, which was Monday, July 11th, I had the great opportunity to be at the reception that honored Secretary Gary Locke and his wife, Mona Locke. It was a great experience, and I was glad to be given a chance to write a reflection piece for APIAVote. For more from APIAVote, click here.
