U.S. Representative
CA-18

ELECTION ON JUNE 7TH, 2022

On Your
Ballot

My name is...Rishi Kumar
An independent thinker, in touch, always fighting for the people

Thank you for your support

Thank you! I want to express my immense gratitude to you for trusting this run. I couldn’t have done this without you 🙏 🇺🇸🙏. I have offered my hearty congratulations to Rep. Eshoo on her 15th term and offered my help to address our district's challenges.

How did we do?

We have already far exceeded the vote count of any prior challenger in the last 28 years of this district; 37% vote share. I feel humbled at the strong support. Thank you! If you put up a lawn sign, please pull it from the spot and place it in your garage to be reused later.

Announcing the 2022 Run

We hold our head high about what we have accomplished together. We are hearing it loud and clear to not stop. These sentiments mean a lot to me personally. This is the reason why we are announcing our next run for our congressional district 18. We have filed our candidacy for the 2022 election; we intend to bridge the shortfall of 50,000 votes over the next 2 years. The learning over the last 20 months has been incredible and we are excited about the possibilities. Our district needs dedicated, intelligent leadership and we are ready to take charge.

Let us continue the fight

We set out to build a new future in the last 20 months.. We conducted an unprecedented engagement with our neighbors, wrote many unique and bold policies to address the tough challenges of Silicon Valley and America. We brought forward bold and innovative ideas with a getting-things-done attitude. It is clear that our district residents want it better based on the support our movement has generated.

I am ready and will always keep fighting the good fight. Together, we can.

I hope I can count on your continued support. It would mean a lot to me.
In gratitude
Rishi Kumar

Rishi will fight for peace!

A contrast of two Democrats, Rishi Kumar and Rep. Anna Eshoo

Anna Eshoo

Rep. Anna Eshoo has supported the following U.S wars.

  • Libya (2011)
  • Afghanistan (2003)
  • War on Terror (2001)
  • Balkan Wars
  • Somalia (1995)

$6.3Trillion have gone towards war since 2000. These dollars would be better spent at home and to prioritize the needs of our country. Our failed foreign policy must end and we must get our brothers and sisters out of harm’s way by withdrawing America from ongoing conflicts.

Uptick in Military: Rep. Anna Eshoo voted YES for the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020. Spend: President Trump has deployed 15,000 U.S Troops into the Middle East over the last 8 month. Congress just approved a $738 billion military budget, a $22 billion increase over last year. That is a whopping $130 billion increase in the last 3 years. Is this spending justified? Yes, Rep. Anna Eshoo supported this budget increase. Did you know 40 House Democrats voted NO?

Rishi Kumar

Not All Democrats are the same. As your congressman...

  • I will NOT support regime change wars. Bringing America to the brink of war is not necessary considering the challenges we face here throughout America's communities. That’s why it’s so important , now more than ever, for our country that we stand together for peace now.
  • I will seek to limit the Presidential use of force without congressional approval.
  • I would not support increases in the military budget when we have crucial domestic challenges that need to be addressed.
  • I will maintain a stance of keeping Americans safe, out of war, and putting the money to work in America.
  • I will vote to block any federal funding for military action taken for wars without congressional approval.
NOTE: I do commend Rep. Eshoo for not supporting the war with Iraq and intervention in Yemen and Syria

There is no victory in endless war and I will do my utmost.
