The California Senate Republican Caucus drew the obvious connection to Sen. Elizabeth Warren by adding the hashtag #ShePersisted to its tweet. According to the Sacramento Bee, Sen. Nguyen, a Vietnamese refugee, had begun to criticize the late Democrat lawmaker Tom Hayden just two days after he had been memorialized.
Hayden, an anti-war activist who traveled with then-wife Jane Fonda to North Vietnam in 1974, drew criticism from Nguyen, who said Hayden “sided with the communist government that enslaved and killed millions of Vietnamese, including my family.”
