The first chief technology officer of the US will run in the Democratic primary in June, reported the Deccan Chronicle.

“I decided to run for the post as I firmly believe our state government can be smarter, faster, better, and fairer for all Virginians. This is a message that is resonating across the Commonwealth, and I look forward to engaging with more Virginians on it in the coming months,” he said.

Chopra’s father immigrated to the United States in 1966. The candidate graduated from John Hopkins University and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
