Incoming freshmen Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA) seems like a really good man. It was exciting to see a Vietnamese-American elected to congress, and Louisiana at that. However, after listening to these recent interviews with Think Progress here and here, I'm counting down the days until he leaves the the GOP. Rep. Cao represents Louisiana's 2nd congressional district covering nearly all of New Orleans and is 64.1% African American. The videos are worth watching because they show just how divergent from the rest of his caucus.
