Seeking to be one of the few Indian Americans, to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, and the first from Texas, I am honored to consider USINPAC as a supporter of my campaign. Support from a leading and respected organization such as theirs means a great deal to me and my campaign. Their work has gone a long way to progressions between the United States and India, and I look forward to working with USINPAC once elected.
