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.
