Congressional candidate Dr. Vanila Singh issued the following statement in response to a lawsuit filed Monday and news reports that Ro Khanna recruited two last-minute Republican candidates to split the GOP vote in California’s 17th Congressional District primary:
“Yesterday’s reports regarding Ro Khanna’s campaign and their efforts to recruit multiple Republicans in order to split the Republican vote are disturbing. That a candidate or his supporters would tamper with an election like this demonstrates a deep and clear sense of entitlement.
“California’s top-two primary system is new. And it should be respected, not manipulated by candidates desperate to gain an unfair and undeserved advantage through vote dilution.
