Kwan told the couple of dozen people at the rink she thinks about her parents, who emigrated to the U.S. “with nothing” to pursue the American Dream, according to the Des Moines Register. 


“I had the opportunity to figure skate,” she reportedly added. “That was beyond what parents could dream of. But that’s the American Dream. And that’s, to me, what’s at stake. And that is why I proudly support Joe Biden. He always is a fighter for everyone — not just those at the top.”

Kwan, Biden’s director of surrogates, planned to launch a canvass shift in West Des Moines and attend a house party in Johnston after her appearance at the skating rink, the Register noted.
