NEW YORK -- Less than a week before one of the most hotly contested elections in U.S. history, President Donald Trump lost the support of an Asian American group of Republicans that could be the difference in Florida and other swing states.

The National Committee of Asian American Republicans, or "Asian GOP," endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, saying in a statement Friday, "We need a president with empathy, integrity, and broadness capable of bringing all sides to the table." The group backed Trump in the 2016 contest.
