Indian-American announces plans to run for US Congress

The Republican primary for the seat is scheduled for August 14. So far he is the only candidate from the party to enter the fray.

An Indian-American investment banker has announced his plan to run for the US House of Representatives from a Congressional seat in Connecticut.

Harry Arora, 48, seeks to oust Democratic incumbent Jim Himes, who has represented the 4th Congressional District since January 2009.

Arora wants to have a Republican voice in the so called ‘Samosa Caucus’ — the informal group of Indian-Americans in the US House of Representatives.

Currently four Indian-Americans in the US House of Representatives — Ami Bera, Ro Khanna, Raja Krishnamoorthi and Pramila Jayapal — are from Democratic party.
