Newport Beach, CA --- Today, Congressional candidate Scott Baugh (R-CA47) praised the United States Supreme Court's rulings striking down race-based college admissions.
"The court's decisions bring our nation one step closer to achieving the dream of Rev. Martin Luther King that we will one day be a nation where people are judged on their character and not the color of their skin," said Baugh. "Asian-Americans, in particular, have proven to be victims of these unconstitutional race-based admissions and that will end as of today."
Baugh is running in California's 47th Congressional District, home to the University of California, Irvine. He has long been active in supporting education and youth programs. Baugh founded the OC Marathon Foundation, a local charity that has helped teach 100,000 young people about exercise and nutrition. Scott has also served as Chairman of the Gang Reduction Intervention Partnership which works with law enforcement, teachers and parents throughout the county to keep kids out of gangs. He is a trustee at Pacifica Christian High School of Orange County. Scott and his wife Wendy live in Huntington Beach. He has lived in the district for over 30 years.
