Suhas Subramanyam Wins VA Congressional Primary

India-West News Desk

RICHMOND, VA – Suhas Subramanyam has secured the Democratic primary for a Congressional seat in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. He beat back a crowded Democratic field of 11 other candidates, including fellow Indian American Krystle Kaul.

Subramanyam, 37, the first Indian American, South Asian, and Hindu to be elected to the Virginia General Assembly in 2019 and the Virginia State Senate in 2023, is now poised to make history from the state in the general elections in November. He will face off Mike Clancy who won the Republican ticket beating India-born Manga Anantatmula, a government contractor.

Subramanyam is running for the seat currently held by Democrat Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton, who announced last year she would not seek re-election because of ill health. She endorsed Subramanyam in the primary.

As Subramanyam aims to extend his public service to the national stage from what is seen as a safely blue one, he is likely to focus on his legislative experience and his commitment to progressive values, as he seeks to build on the support he received in the primary.

Born in Houston to physician parents who migrated from Bengaluru, Subramanyam has a distinguished background in public service and policy. In 2015, he was appointed by then-President Barack Obama as a White House technology policy advisor.
