Denver, CO. The US-India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) continues to have a strong presence at the Democratic Convention in Denver, Colorado. USINPAC met with numerous dignitaries including Senate Majority Whip and Obama confidant Richard Durbin (D-IL), and former Governor Mark Warner (D-VA), who was the keynote speaker of the convention and a candidate for the U.S. Senate.
"The success of the community, USINPAC and the Caucus can be seen by so many Indian-Americans attending the Convention," said Congressman Frank Pallone (D-NJ-6), Member of the House Commerce Committee and the Congressional India Caucus. "The work of USINPAC and other Indian-American organizations has been essential in creating awareness on a national level for the important issues that affect the community."
Today's convention was headlined by a speech by Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Governor Mark Warner (D-VA). Governor Warner visited India in 2005 as part of a delegation organized by the US-India Business Alliance (USIBA).
USINPAC representatives and members attended numerous events at the convention including the Democratic Party's Faith Caucus and Youth Caucus, and the American Jewish Committee's Reception in Honor for the Diplomatic Core of Israel.
"So many of our members are attending both the Democratic and Republican Conventions," said Sanjay Puri, Chairman of USINPAC. "Every year we see more and more Indian-Americans attending conventions as delegates and candidates, and we fully expect this trend to continue."
USINPAC will be represented at each and every day of both the Democratic and Republican Conventions.
The US-India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) is the political voice of 2.5 million Indian-Americans. USINPAC provides bipartisan support to candidates for federal, state and local office who support the issues that are important to the Indian-American community.
