Preview: Mr. Cao Goes to Washington

PBS Follows the Journey of the Republic Party's Only Non-White Congressman

Mr. Cao Goes to Washington (PBS, 9pm) follows the journey of Rep. Joseph Cao, the first Vietnamese American elected to the US Congress, the only non-white House Republican of the 111th Congress, and the only Republican to vote for President Obama’s Health Care Reform Bill.

A former seminarian and an idealistic attorney from the small but well-respected Vietnamese-American neighborhood in New Orleans, Anh “Joseph” Cao enters the political arena hoping to affect greater good. Having never won an election, Cao scores a stunning upset by unseating a nine-term incumbent mired in a bribery scandal to capture a Congressional seat in just his second run for public office.
