Indian American Impact Fund Announces Two Endorsements

The Indian American Impact Fund announced endorsements for two candidates for Congress. One is Sri Kulkarni, who is running in Texas’ 22nd Congressional District. The majority-minority district includes the Houston suburb of Sugar Land, which is home to a large Indian American community. After finishing first in the Democratic primary with nearly 32% of the vote, Kulkarni will have to face fellow Democrat Letitia Plummer in the May 22nd runoff to earn the right to take on incumbent Congressman Pete Olson (R-TX). Kulkarni is a former Defense advisor to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) as well as a Foreign Service Officer who served tours in Taiwan, Russia, Iraq, Israel, and Jamaica. The Impact Fund also endorsed Dr. Hiral Tipirneni in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District.
