Infogeneral counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives, from 1995 to 1996. She was Republican secretary of state for Nevada (1992-1995) and deputy attorney general of Nevada's Attorney General's Office (1987-1991). Among her many affiliations, Lau served as the vice chair of the 1992 Republican National Platform Committee, secretary of the Republican National Convention in 1992, and chair of the National Commission for the Renewal of American Democracy.

Even as a student at Hilo High in Hawaii, Cheryl Lau was Fascinated with Politics. But the woman who is Nevada's secretary of state's first Asian American to hold elected office at the executive level, and the woman who made an unsuccessful bid to become the first Asian American woman to be elected a state governor, never dreamed of making politics a career.

Her victory as remarkable, considering that the eventual winners of the gubernational attorney general, and majority were Democrats. Lau's affiliation with the Republican Party often produces lively debate when she gets together with her father, mother, and two sisters. During her term as secretary of states, she has made it easier for businesses to obtain licenses in Nevada. After considering her options and the record she has built on such issues, Lau decided to try to climb the next step on the political ladder on April 28, 1994, she announced she would run for governor, but lost in the November elections.
