Did Indian Americans mobilize the margin of victory in the Georgia Senate runoff?

Hundreds of Indian American volunteers converged on Georgia last month, knocking on doors, sending out hand-written postcards, phone-banking and driving voters to the polls to gain a narrow victory for Democrats in the Dec. 6 Senate runoff.

The key race handed Democrats a 51-49 majority in the Senate. Democrats lost the House in the mid-term election Nov. 7, but by just 10 seats, a much-smaller margin than the earlier predicted “red wave.” Indian American political leaders predicted that Democrats would continue to wield majority power in the Senate despite the defection of former Democrat Sen. Krysten Sinema of Arizona on Dec. 9.

'Namaste Aunty': US Congress at Stake, Desi Americans Key to Tight Midterm Races
Locked in a tight battle to control the United States (US) Congress, Democrats and Republicans continue to believe in the no vote left on the table mantra. Hence the votes of one of America's fastest growing immigrant populations – Asian Americans – are pivotal, as shown by some dead-heats in the last election.

“We are about South Asian American votes. We can be influential if there are a few thousand South Asian voters in a tight race and if there are hundreds of thousands of desi voters in not such a tight race, we can be influential there too," says Rajiv Bhateja, Co-Founder of They See Blue (a play on the words Desi Blue), a grassroots organisation whose mission is to mobilise Americans of South Asian origin to vote for Democrats.
