May 27, 2015–A rematch appears to be set in the race for California’s 17 congressional district in 2016. Ro Khanna plans to officially start a new campaign to defeat congressman Mike Honda. The campaign launch is set for Saturday morning at Santa Clara City Hall. Mike Honda defeated Khanna last November in a highly anticipated runoff between rival Democrats. Khanna raised $801,000 dollars in the first three months of 2015. Since his loss, he’s been active in Honda’s Silicon Valley district,. He’s been working with the San Jose, Santa Clara, and Milpitas city governments on issues like the Newby Island Landfill, the soccer fields behind Levi’s Stadium, and manufacturing.
Hey, Ro, if soccer fields are so much part of your agenda, then why are 45 different season ticket holders for the 49ers who gave Super Pacs money for you own limos??
Limo owners that want those soccer fields are mostly contributing to Ro Khanna!
The Indian energy efficiency market presents enormous potential to create U.S. jobs, asserted a senior level official of the U.S. Department of Commerce here.
Speaking at a clean-technology exports luncheon at California State University East Bay, Ro Khanna, deputy assistant secretary of the U.S. Commercial Service in the Department of Commerce, noted that India had last month pledged to generate 20 gigawatts of solar energy by the year 2020.
Khanna co-led an energy efficiency trade mission to India Nov. 16-20 with Rick Wade, deputy chief of staff for Commerce Secretary Gary Locke. The mission took representatives of 16 energy efficiency companies to Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi to woo potential clients in those cities.
The trade delegation also met with senior Indian government officials and participated in a clean-tech conference in New Delhi.
