Angie Chen Button

District Outlook
The 2011 round of redistricting made HD112 less Asian, but not necessarily less safe for incumbent Button. The district which first elected Button initially consisted of a sizable share of Vietnamese population, which provided a base for the Democratic nominee in 2008. The district has a marginally safe base of Republican support and Button retains much of her establishment support from her district. Intraparty politics, however, are still a concern. On July 2, 2013, Jared Patterson announced his plans to challenge Button in the GOP primary, touching on a number of tea party themes in his announcement.
