Gary Locke (WA-D) is probably best known for being in the Obama cabinet, but historically he will probably be remembered as arguably the first major Chinese-American in the federal government. I certainly expect by 2100 that we will see a lot more Chinese-Americans in government, especially if a crises hits China, causing a lot of mass immigration. 

As Gov of WA, he was considered a moderate, probably somewhere between Manchin and Biden today. 

His actions:

Locke, Gary 1997 Becomes Gov of WA & 1st Asian-American gov in the continental US & 1st Chinese-American Gov
Locke, Gary 2000 Considered for VP by Gore and other Democrats
Locke, Gary 2004 Considered for potential cabinet office by Kerry as Sec of Educ or Trade Rep
Locke, Gary 2009 Sec of Commerce for Obama; had been considered for Sec of Interior
Locke, Gary 2011 Appt Amb to China by Obama; 1st Chinese descent Amb of China
Locke, Gary 2020 Subject of Trump reelection ad falsely claming Locke was member of Chinese Communist Party
