Raja Krishnamoorthi on Principles & Values
Krishnamoorthi won the seat vacated by Tammy Duckworth, who won Illinois' U.S. Senate seat.
Krishnamoorthi called it a "disheartening" campaign season. He says what unites people far outweighs what divides them and that everyone should work together. [Several Indian Americans have served in the U.S. House, including Dalip Singh Saund from 1957 to 1963 and current Rep. Ami Bera who was first elected in 2012. But neither was Hindu; Saund was a Sikh and Bera is a Christian. Kamala Harris was elected on the same day as the first Indian-American in the Senate, but she is also not Hindu].
