A Democrat running in a Republican-leaning district, political newcomer Phu Nguyen hopes to sway enough voters to win the seat now held by the first Vietnamese state legislator.
After one month at sea, the death of nine children aboard their boat and eight months in a Hong Kong refugee camp, Phu Nguyen's family finally arrived in America. His parents had only $2 in their pockets when they came to Orange County in 1981, Nguyen says, and today they have a multistate corporation and one of the nicest homes in Huntington Beach.
