Axios - Kamala Harris and the political rise of America’s Indian community
Axios - When Democrats next week formally nominate the daughter of an Indian immigrant to be vice president, it’ll be perhaps the biggest leap yet in the Indian American community’s rapid ascent into a powerful political force.
Why it matters: Indian Americans are one of the fastest-growing, wealthiest and most educated demographic groups in the U.S. Politicians work harder every year to woo them. And in Kamala Harris, they’ll be represented in a major-party presidential campaign for the first time.

Yes, but:** For now, Democrats still hold the edge. And Harris may help them solidify it.
Hillary Clinton won the Indian American vote by about 70 points in 2016, according to an exit poll by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. . .
