Indian-American Democrat Suhas Subramanyam, a 2-term delegate, of Ashburn, will be running for Virginia’s newly-drawn 32nd Senate District. He currently represents the 87th House district and will succeed Senator John Bell, who will not be in the race for Senate again.
A resident of Loudoun County, Subramanyam was elected to the Virginia General Assembly in 2019 and became the first Indian-American and South Asian ever be elected. In his bid, Subramanyam is endorsed by Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton, Senator John Bell, and several democratic elected leaders representing Eastern Loudoun county.
“If elected to the Senate, I will continue the work I started as a delegate to empower my constituents, put people and families before special interests, and stand up for our core values,” Subramanyam said.
I look forward to sharing my vision this campaign season of creating a robust economy that works for Loudon families and businesses alike, protecting our freedoms like reproductive rights and voting rights from extremism, delivering a world-class education to our kids, and keeping our community safe and healthy,” he added.
Subramanyam has served as a White House advisor to President Barack Obama in 2015. He led a task force on technology policy addressing job creation, IT modernization, and regulating emerging technology.
A technology and regulatory attorney, he earned his law degree from Northwestern University School of Law. He was named to the Loudoun Times-Mirror’s ’40 Under 40′
Subramanyam will face former state delegate and dentist Ibraheem Samirah in the primary for the 32nd District.
