Not only are these victories great milestones for the Sikh American community and a positive step in furthering the inclusion and acceptance of Sikh Americans in the United States but shows that the people are open minded and do vote based on the values of the incumbent, especially in these trying times.
ASC Vice-President Jasbir Kaur stated, “Sikh American candidates have made the community at large extremely proud of their achievements.” ASC Vice
