2024 Elections: Republican Hindu and Indian American Coalition launched


The Republican Party has launched the Republican Hindu and Indian American Coalition with an eye on the 2024 elections. Spearheading the move to woo Indian American voters is Shalabh “Shailli” Kumar, the founding chairman of the Republican Hindu Coalition.

“Republicans stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Hindu and Indian American families and I am excited to announce this important coalition, alongside Shalli, to build upon our historic investments in Hindu and Indian American communities,” said Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel while announcing the launch of the coalition.

“We celebrate the contributions of the Hindu and Indian American community at large for strengthening America as entrepreneurs, tech innovators, physicians, IT professionals, owners of hundreds of thousands of small businesses and service members in our military.”

“Chairwoman McDaniel is a great conservative leader and a true friend of six million Hindu Americans, a friend of India and Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi,” said Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar.

“I am honored to serve on the RNC’s Hindu and Indian American Coalition, to continue my work alongside Chairwoman McDaniel to convert a large number of Hindu and Indian American voters on a permanent basis from Democrat to Republican and also strengthen the bond between the United States and India.”

For the 2022 cycle, the RNC made a multi-million dollar commitment to continue its organizing efforts in Asian-Pacific American communities in key states across the country, according to an RNC press release.
