Ballot

My name is...Rishi Kumar
An independent thinker, in touch, always fighting for the people

Thank you for your support

Thank you! I want to express my immense gratitude to you for trusting this run. I couldn’t have done this without you 🙏 🇺🇸🙏. I have offered my hearty congratulations to Rep. Eshoo on her 15th term and offered my help to address our district's challenges.

How did we do?

We have already far exceeded the vote count of any prior challenger in the last 28 years of this district; 37% vote share. I feel humbled at the strong support. Thank you! If you put up a lawn sign, please pull it from the spot and place it in your garage to be reused later.

Announcing the 2022 Run

We hold our head high about what we have accomplished together. We are hearing it loud and clear to not stop. These sentiments mean a lot to me personally. This is the reason why we are announcing our next run for our congressional district 18. We have filed our candidacy for the 2022 election; we intend to bridge the shortfall of 50,000 votes over the next 2 years. The learning over the last 20 months has been incredible and we are excited about the possibilities. Our district needs dedicated, intelligent leadership and we are ready to take charge.

Let us continue the fight

We set out to build a new future in the last 20 months.. We conducted an unprecedented engagement with our neighbors, wrote many unique and bold policies to address the tough challenges of Silicon Valley and America. We brought forward bold and innovative ideas with a getting-things-done attitude. It is clear that our district residents want it better based on the support our movement has generated.

I am ready and will always keep fighting the good fight. Together, we can.

I hope I can count on your continued support. It would mean a lot to me.
In gratitude
Rishi Kumar
