Evan Low gaining. Srivastava advances in Congressional race

Sandeep Srivastava is preparing for a rematch with incumbent Rep. Keith Self (R-TX) in the general election while California Assemblyperson Evan Low is hanging on to hope he can slip into the general election for California’s 16th District Congressional race.

Low has gained just under half of a percent since election night on Supervisor Joe Simitian who remains in second place behind former San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo. The top two vote getters advance to the general election.

As of this writing, Low is in third place with 16% of the vote to Simitian’s 17.7% and Liccardo’s 21.8% with mail in and provisional ballots still being counted.

Low is the son of Chinese immigrants and is from the LGBTQ community.

Srivastava ran unopposed in the Democratic primary in Texas’ 3rd Congressional District in the suburbs north and northeast of Dallas. The district is considered solidly Republican and the first-term Congressman Self handily defeated Srivastava with 60.5% of the vote in the 2022 election.

Srivastava is an Indian American real estate broker and consultant.

Derek Tran is holding on to second place in California’s 45th Congressional District in Orange County. The latest vote totals show Kim Bernice Nguyen-Penaloza gaining a half a percent on Tran. He currently has a 16.2% to 14.6% advantage. Incumbent Michelle Steel leads with 56.3%.

Both are Vietnamese American. Nguyen-Penaloza is also of Mexican American.

They are both battling to face incumbent Republican Steel who is Korean American.
