The California Report: Two Democrats Face Off in Silicon Valley – Ro Khanna vs. Mike Honda


This past August, I interviewed Ro Khanna, who is running for the 17th Congressional District in California. Recently, KQED / NPR did a nice overview on the dynamics of the Congressional race, profiling incumbent – Congressman Mike Honda and fellow Democrat, Ro Khanna.

As noted in the piece, this is a unique race where we have two Asian Americans (of different generations) and two Democrats running in an open primary where the majority of the voters are Asian American as well as predominately Democratic. Take a listen if you’d like to learn more about the race.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
