Telangana Woman Win Oakland Seat Against Trump's Party
A Democrat, Padma Kuppa who is an Indian-American had won against Republican Doug Tietz in the US Mid-term elections from Oakland County.
Padma had collected 51.3 percent versus 48.7 percent for Tietz and she is one among 10 female candidates in the top 13 target races for House Democrats.
She was competing with Republican Oakland County Commissioner Doug Tietz in the 41st State House District that includes Troy and Clawson.
Two years ago, term-limited Republican Rep. Martin Howrylak won re-election by 13 percentage points, but the support of but district voters is very less for Democrat Hillary Clinton over Trump in the race.
Two years after his narrow statewide win, Trump's approval rating is underwater in affluent and educated areas such as suburban Oakland County, especially with women.
Padma is a 53-year-old woman who once studied at REC Warangal in Telangana. Isn’t it as prud moment to whole Telangana!
