Love For The Of Hockey Shirt, Some Indian-Americans are calling Harris’ election an early Diwali present. The Indian festival of lights begins this weekend.
Along with Harris’ victory, all four other Indian-American Democrats in Congress were re-elected this past week. (Though another Indian-American lost his bid for a House seat in Texas.) Together with Harris, who served in the U.S. Senate, they have been dubbed by some Indian media as the “Samosa Caucus” — after the popular Indian snack.
In 2016, the majority of Oakland County voters, 51.3%, chose Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over then Republican nominee Donald Trump, who received 43.2% of the vote. Statewide, Michiganders narrowly favored Trump over Clinton by 10,700 votes, the closest presidential race in the state’s history.
Over the past four years, Oakland County has been turning more and more blue. In 2018, the county board of commissioners became a Democratic majority for the first time in over 40 years with five of the county’s top six elected offices now held by Democrats, including County Executive David Coulter.
