Ashwin Ramaswami, a 24-year-old Gen Z Indian-American, is making waves as he vies for a seat in the Georgia State Senate. In a remarkable display of support, Ramaswami has raised over USD 280,000 for his campaign, outstripping his opponent, Shawn Still, by a staggering 22-fold during the latest filing period from February 1 to April 30. While Ramaswami amassed over USD 146,000, Still managed to raise only USD 6,400. The two contenders are contesting for the State Senate seat in District 48 of Georgia.

The campaign finance report highlights Ramaswami’s significant fundraising achievement, with a total of over USD 280,000 raised and USD 208,000 cash on hand, underscoring the momentum behind his grassroots campaign.

Reflecting on his campaign’s values, Ramaswami asserted his commitment to prioritizing the needs of the community, including funding education, supporting small businesses, embracing technological advancements, and safeguarding voting rights. He criticized his opponent, Shawn Still, citing concerns over Still’s leadership and integrity, particularly in light of his actions related to the 2020 election.

Ramaswami’s bid has garnered support from prominent figures, including Congresswoman Lucy McBath of Georgia’s seventh Congressional district, who endorsed his candidacy. McBath praised Ramaswami’s vision and experience, highlighting the significance of the District 48 seat as a crucial opportunity for Georgia Democrats.

Ramaswami’s background includes extensive work with nonprofits, startups, and small businesses, focusing on leveraging technology for public good and job creation. He served as a civil servant at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), where he contributed to cybersecurity and election security efforts during the 2020 and 2022 elections. Additionally, Ramaswami gained legal experience as a fellow in the Georgia Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division.

With a dedication to serving his community and a track record of impactful work, Ramaswami represents a new generation of leadership poised to make a difference in Georgia’s political landscape.
