Washington , Sept 29:
An Indian-American businessman has joined the race for the Republican nomination for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, campaigning on a message of “hope, growth and opportunity”.
“Virginia is in trouble right now and we’re running out of time as Democrats offer the same old tired promises,” 55-year-old Puneet Ahluwalia said announcing his run for the lieutenant governor nomination last week.
“My campaign will bring a message of hope, growth and opportunity to every person, every family and every community in Virginia,” he said.
Delhi-born Ahluwalia migrated to the US in 1990. His wife Nadia is originally from Afghanistan.
