Wins primary

Indian-American Raj Goyle has won a primary from Kansas State to bag Democratic Party's nomination for the November Congressional elections, becoming the latest candidate from the community to join the race for the House of Representatives. Flanked by his wife Monica and seven-month-old daughter Ana, State Representative Mr. Goyle declared victory before an overflow crowd in Wichita, saying “I am very humbled and proud to stand before you ... as the Democratic Party's nominee for the United States Congress.”

Mr. Goyle, who has made jobs and the economy his campaign's focus, vowed “to eliminate the tax breaks and loopholes that reward companies for shipping our jobs overseas. Our own government has been rewarding companies that destroy U.S. jobs. It is just wrong. And it's got to stop.” — PTI
