The ‘Samosa caucus’ in the US House, consisting of Indian American representatives, may expand after the 2024 election. Ravi Bhalla and Rishi Kumar are running for the Democratic primary for the US House from New Jersey’s 8th district and Silicon Valley, respectively. Bhalla’s campaign focuses on healthcare, climate change, and building an inclusive economy, while Kumar aims to bring Silicon Valley’s ethos to Capitol Hill. Other Indian Americans running for the Democratic primaries for US Congress include Susheela Jayapal, Amish Shah, and Kevin Thomas.
