WASHINGTON: Seeking re-election for his Congressional seat in California, Democrat Ami Bera has raised more than $485,000 in the first quarter of this year, his campaign announced. Bera is the only Indian American Congressman in the current Congress and is only the third ever Indian American lawmaker elected to the House of Representatives.
The campaign has nearly $1.5 million cash on hand for the Congressional elections to be held in November. Vast majority of Bera's support is local, with 85 percent of individual donations this quarter coming from California. Additionally, more than 73 percent of those contributions were $100 or less. "I am so grateful for the incredible continued help from our grassroots supporters who make this campaign possible," Bera said.

"It's just further confirmation that Sacramento County families want a problem solver who keeps his promises and puts them ahead of politics representing them in Congress," he added. Dr Ami Bera represents Sacramento County in Congress. "As a leader of the No Labels' Problem Solvers, Bera is leading the charge to find bipartisan solutions to our nation's challenges, and worked to pass the No Budget No Pay Act, which says if members of Congress don't pass a budget, they don't get paid," the campaign added.
