Tulsi Gabbard outraises Kamala Harris among Indian-American donors

Washington: Tulsi Gabbard, the first Hindu US Congress­wo­man and Democratic 2020 pres­i­d­e­ntial candidate, has vastly out­raised Senator Kamala Harris of Indian and Jamaican descent among Indian-American donors in the fundrai­sing derby so far. Gabba­rd, a Hindu American but not Indian-American, has raised over $237,000, from the commu­nity.

In comparison, Harris, daug­h­ter of an Indian American mot­her and Jamaican American fat­her, has so far raised $72,606 from the community, according to AAPI Data, which publishes data and policy resea­r­ch on Asian Ameri­cans and Pacific Islanders. In a clear sign Har­ris, one of the strong­est conten­ders in the crow­d­ed 2020 Demo­cratic field, has not been fully embraced by the community, the Senator even tra­ils New Jersey’s Corey Booker among Indian-Americans.
