As millions of Americans cast their votes in key races for governor, secretary of state and other offices, Indian-American woman Aruna Miller has become the first immigrant to hold the office of Lieutenant Governor in Maryland. The 58-year-old Democrat is said to have her roots in Hyderabad and immigrated to the United States from India when she was 7. She graduated from the Missouri University of Science and Technology with a degree in civil engineering in 1989 and worked for 25 years at the local Department of Transportation in Montgomery County. She tweeted “There`s no place I`d rather be than with voters! Our community has pushed us to be our best selves this campaign and I cannot even begin to put my gratitude into words for your commitment and support”. According to political experts, all four Indian-American incumbents - Ami Bera, Raja Krishnamoorthi, Ro Khanna and Pramila Jayapal, are likely to be re-elected.
