NASABA Speaker, House Candidate faces Racism and Bigotry from Opponent

August 13, 2010

Raj Goyle, who has spoken at the last two NASABA Conventions about public service and public office, is running for Congress in Kansas’ 4th Congressional District. Raj, who grew up in Wichita, Kansas and returned home after college and law school to teach at Wichita State and to begin a family, looks to all the world as an All-American husband and father, a success story. He currently represents the 87th District in the Kansas House of Representatives.

On August 11, Raj’s opponent in the Congressional race, Mike Pompeo, approvingly linked to a blog post calling Raj a ‘turban topper’ in an official campaign tweet. The Pompeo campaign has since apologized, though states that the staffer who tweeted the link had “no malice in his actions.”

NASABA will have an official statement on this soon, but we wanted to get the word out now.
