`Samosa Caucus` wins re-election in Congressional races
The four Indian American members of Congress – Pramila Jayapal, Ro Khanna, Ami Bera and Raja Krishnamoorthi – affectionately known as the ``Samosa Caucus,`` have all been re-elected in their respective races in the Nov. 6 midterm election. The trio of first-term U.S. Reps. Jayapal, Khanna and Krishnamoorthi all won in landslides, while Bera, the longtime U.S. representative in California`s 7th Congressional District, won in a more closely-contested race. Nationwide, the Democratic Party won more than the necessary 218 seats to reclaim control of the House, while the U.S. Senate remains in GOP control. Jayapal, who has been very active and vocal in her first two years in Washington, D.C., earned the support of the constituents in the 7th Congressional District of Washington, covering the Seattle area.
