Rep. Anna Eshoo

  • Rep. Eshoo was first elected at age 50 in 1992, meaning 2022 will mark her 30th year in office. While claiming to have passed 45 bills, she only has 4 trivial bills sponsored. www.RishiKumar.com/Deceptive
  • Rep Eshoo is the #1 recipient of Big Pharma money in the U.S. House of Representatives, and legislates to protect pharma profits. www.RishiKumar.com/Facts
  • Rep. Eshoo has been a backbencher forever in Congress, has failed to lead charge, and is increasingly out of touch with our challenges such as the Big Tech transgressions, tech exodus, and the pandemic. www.RishiKumar.com/OutOfTouch

Rishi Kumar

Rishi’s American dream - From graduate student to a run for U.S Congress.

As a hi-tech executive, I was transferred by IBM to Silicon Valley from Michigan and I absolutely loved it here. My wife, a networking industry professional, and I are raising our two boys and found our American dream in Saratoga. We also discovered deep joy in giving back, solving the problems of our community and helping to better people's lives. That is why I am running for Congress.
