Pramila Jayapal on Principles & Values
Jayapal beat her opponent in a landslide victory, winning 57 percent of the vote to his 43 percent. Jayapal was "one of the first 2016 congressional candidates" to earn an endorsement from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who said, ?"When you think of the political revolution, I want you to think about Pramila."
Jayapal wrote, "Thank you for standing up for the values of our country--values that welcomed me as a 16-year-old immigrant." [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].
