Political Donations From South-Asian Community For Nevada Federal Races Way Smaller Than Contributions For The Local State Races

After contributing over $300,000 to the local State and County wide political races, the local South-Asian community contributes over $83,000 to candidates for the 2022 Congressional and Senatorial races.  First time Republican Congressional candidate, April Becker received one donation of $2,900 from Sanjeeta Khurana, while her opponent, the incumbent Congresswoman Susie Lee (D) raised $5,750 from the local South-Asian community.

Congresswoman Dina Titus raked in $9,000 mostly from the local Sri Lankan community members.  While Congressman Steven Horsford raised $6,735 during the last calendar year.

US Senator Catherine Cortez-Masto, who is up for reelection this year, received over $49,000 from our community with three Physicians – Drs. Ahsan Chowdhury, Aurangzeb Nagy, and Rachakonda Prabhu at the forefront of maximum allowable campaign contribution for the current election year. Republican candidate for the US Senate, Adam Laxalt could manage to bring in meager $3,900 from three out-of-state members of the Indian community. Senator Jacky Rosen, who is not up for re-election in 2022 received $6,300.  

Interestingly, Indian-American Vinod Gadley is the sole donor with regular monthly contribution to Democratic Senators Cortez and Rosen.
