Washington - Asian-Americans are growing in political clout in the United States and could be crucial to the outcome of upcoming legislative elections.
They are flexing their muscle in traditional strongholds like California as well as in big ticket races such as in Illinois.
At present, there are six Asian-American legislators in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and two in the Senate, also dominated by President George W. Bush's Republican Party.
