Can't Win Them All: Satveer Chaudhary

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Not really much to say on this except for what's already been stated.

Indian-American Satveer Chaudhary, who in 1996 became the first Asian-American lawmaker in the Minnesota House of Representatives, has lost in the primary for the State Senate Seat, which he has represented for a decade [...] In all Chaudhary represented his district for 14 years, four years a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives and 10 years as the State Senator.

During his tenure, Chaudhary set a number of electoral milestones. When first elected to the House of Representatives in 1996, he was Minnesota's first Asian-American legislator.

Just four years later, his election to the Senate made him the state's first Asian-American Senator, Minnesota's then-youngest Senator, and the highest ranking Asian-Indian official in the nation.
Okay, I do have one thing to say and it has something to do about a door closing, or window opening, or one of the two, but since I can't quite remember and I'm too lazy to look it up because I have porn streaming on those other monitors, I'll just say I think opportunity is knocking for Chaudhary.
