The Most Asian American Congressional District: California’s 17th

California_US_Congressional_District_17_(since_2013).tifThis article from the Daily Kos talks about the  most Asian American congressional district in the United States – California’s 17th District.  I would have thought that a district in Hawaii would be more Asian American, but the Honolulu district closely trails this Silicon Valley area.  Some highlights:

  • The district is 52% Asian American
  • Indian Americans make up 18% of the population
  • I live in this district! (actually, although true, that’s not in the article).

The article also talks about the current representative, Mike Honda, who beat another Asian American Ro Khanna in the last district election but might be vulnerable in the next election after an ethics report was made public in September.

You can see more details about the district in the article.
